Lindt

Was at Martin Place in Sydney this morning and, being aware that the Lindt Cafe was due to reopen after the tragic hostage siege of December, thought I should show my support as well as pay my respects by stopping by for a long black (it's next door to my office).

I had feared that folk might stay away due to security concerns, but in the event those fears were far from being realised, as Sydneysiders poured through the doors in an inspirational show of support.

Bravo to the staff, particularly cafe worker Joel Herat who returned to work today as a survivor of the event.
