My Day!

Just a quick post to share an experience I had today.  I work in the tallest building in Perth (currently the 7th tallest in Australia) and today was the day when I was one of a small group that had the once-a-month opportunity for "tenants" to take a roof top tour 51 floors above the ground.  It was fantastic - Perth is such a pretty city anyway with Kings Park, the Swan River, Darling Scarp and lots of greenery but it was pretty special to have such a bird's eye view (I work on a floor much lower down).  To make it even better it was a lovely crisp and sunny autumn day.  I took 40+ photos so once I edit them I'll post some here but in the meantime this is a colleague's snap of me "on the edge" overlooking the Swan River and South Perth.  (And I'll admit that the claustrophobia of the very fast goods lift was worse for me than the height issues once we got onto the roof.)

I have been checking the info that you have linked to so that I could figure out where you work.
I remember seeing that building when we were in Perth in March.I love the view of the river and the buildings opposite and to think that you can look at it every day--lucky you.

Ooh! On top of the World Debbi! Nice! Is that the building with the slanted roof? (wait, did you move to Perth?!) oooh, I have a lot of catching up to do!
