Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

G20 and all that Jazz

The count down to the G20 coming to Brisbane got off to a great start last night with the opening ceremony at the Piazza on South Bank. A culturally rich programme with Aboriginal groups, Torres Islander dance groups, circus groups, Robert Forster from the Go Between Band and the amazing William Barton Playing Didgeridoo and guitar at the same time. There was a diversity and an informality which I love about the way Brisbane does things - but also a determination and a spirit to showcase Brisbane in every possible way to the leaders of the world.

When the Cultural programme was finished we all got up and walked with the Premier leading the way down to South bank, clapping our  clap sticks as we went along, to the Cultural forecourt where he gave a crisp and clear talk about what this was all about - Brisbane at its best. 

Then buildings along the water front but also further in, came alive with the Colour me Brisbane lights. 
Spectacular and sparkly, impressive and innovative.
