    Note: Author's note: Europe - it's a continent, mate! It is also an idea. Paul Keating was Australian Prime Minister. There are art references - to Winckelmann, Mengs, Jacques-Louis David - but, as the joke is that they are so little thought of now, it would be perverse to explain them here. Margaret Dumont was the central female role in many Marx Brothers films; Garnier is, here, an architect, not a perfume. I was in Trieste - [and] Dublin, London [and] China - courtesy of The James Joyce Foundation's travelling prize. 'Bonjour Trieste' - my joke with the title of Francoise Sagan's novel, Bonjour, Tristesse. 'Europe' was written as I bounced to [and] fro between London, Trieste, London again ([and] Gabe's flat there), [and] thence to China on my way home to Australia.
