where are we?

One of the common questions that I get asked while handing out cards and encouraging people to soak up the details of Melbourne's new rolling landmark is "Where are we?" (on the route) and I usually answer "I'm not sure" because generally I am floating, spiritually and mentally, inbetween Karachi and Melbourne, W11 and City Circle, and that place is on no Melbourne map...

connectry

When talking of conducting, one of our Karachi chamak patti guests produced the work 'connectry'. It's a nice idea to think of an art of making connections between people, things, experiences, places, cultures ... The word was quickly picked up by all of us working on the W-11, along with its allied word-concept 'helpry'.

feeling transported

"after twenty years of working on trams and five years on trains this is the first time that I have seen people leaving with such a good feeling" says John, our collaborating tramways company host. And yesterday a woman in her seventies gleamed as she stepped off the tram alone: "the best ride I've ever had".

fear therapy?

"This is wonderful therapy for fear of muslims", said a woman riding the W-11 tram today.
