About Neil...

I live in a small village ten kilometres from the town of Griffith (pop 20 000, that is called big in Australia ... ha!) We are semi-desert but irrigation makes this area a major food and wine producer.

I like to be outdoors. I have always liked cycling, for fitness and fun and holiday. I used to run but now I tell everyone else where to run, mostly I walk. I am the organiser for the local running club for around 30 years now (www.griffithferals.org.au)

When I was younger I spent two years living and working and traveling in southern Africa, and also visited Europe and Scandinavia. I loved it. I met nice people everywhere, and it taught me that we can be so different, but we are also all the same.

But people would ask me about Australia, and I was shocked I did not know much at all. Now I have seen most of Australia, and I finally understand why people want to visit. I always thought 'there is nothing here' but of course that is one of the best things. It seems empty, but when you look close there is so much to see, and feel. The avatar shows a view across a ploughed wheat field not far from where I live, this red is the true colour of the soil.

The card I would most like : I will be happy if you show me something different, something I didn't even know to ask for.

On the back : I like to hear the little things about life in other countries, the little things that you don't get on radio or television. Yes I know you live in blahblah and you have children and a cat, your profile tells me that - tell me something I don't know.

Today, a quote from the radio "When I give food to the poor they call me a Saint. When I ask why the poor have no food they call me a Communist". Dom Helder Camara.
