Condoleezza Rice in Perth

Another side thing is that I got within 500m from Condoleezza Rice today without noticing it. The US Secretary of State came to Perth today and dined at University Club at UWA.

According to the latest survey, Nedlands resident has average $2091 weekly income before tax. That amounts to $100k annual income!

Anyway, hopefully I absorb the goodness of this area and will catapult myself into that income bracket soon. ;-)
