As monsoon season heralds heavy rains throughout the Asian tropics, Buddhist monks bunker down inside monasteries for three months of heightened devotion to meditation and spiritual teaching.

Canberra Times Letters to the Editor: The problems of train travel from Sydney to Canberra

2017-09-19 16:14:41, smh.com.au

Whoopee! Clover Moore wants a faster train service to Canberra. So do I as a lifelong rail fan. But when will these people face reality? The problem with the Sydney-Canberra train is not the rolling stock or even the infrastructure but the fact that it makes nine stops en route, each of which costs the train five minutes or more. Eliminate them, and you will save an hour

Spring so far in Canberra has been brisk, windy and wet and according to the forecast this won't let up all week.
