I flew to Brisbane to present at the inaugural meeting of Queensland government’s Electric Vehicles Network, with the Minister of Energy introducing me. About 1/4 of the size of Sydney or Melbourne, Brisbane reminded me of Vancouver. People in the bigger cities who hadn’t been to Brisbane in years still saw it as a ‘dive’ but with 3 farmers markets, lofts and other dense housing, cool use of alleyways, public beach at the end of the street and stunning public art, this city is a great place to live.
For Aussies in 2011, their favourite topic seemed to be the price of bananas (or bah nah nahs). Due to severe floods in Queensland in January 2011, many bananas were destroyed and others imported (rare). The price of bananas went to $15/kg. By the end of 2011, the price was back down to $2/kg.
