I travelled to Brisbane last week in the Arnage, and tired and weary turned in to Burnett Lane to deliver my motor to the ever affable porters at Lennons.
It has ceased to exist !!
The hotel has been taken over by "foreign nationals" .
And it's name will be changed to next or somesuch.
I was much discomfited and then tried to find the "Peoples' Palace to see it was a backpackers.
What is happening?
Has the world gone mad?
I eventually found refuge in a very nice club run by a lady called Jay-Mee who allowed me sleep on a chaise longue, and parked my Arnage.
Brisbane CBD looked cactus, retail gone, restaurants gone, looked on it's latter legs.
I doubt if Brisbane inner city property will keep it's value over the next 12 months.
I left the next day to visit a cousin who had flown in to the Gold Coast from East of Finland.
