These days, we ride my bicycle to the Queensberry child centre in the morning, and back home in the evening. Lillian sits in the child-carrying backpack on my back. We take a shortcut through Melbourne University campus, which is a maze of narrow footpaths and alleyways. Lillian is a backseat driver, saying “This way!” and pointing where to go. Whenever we pass the Scary Man Tunnel
we have to go in for a short ride. Inside, we’re in the tummy of a whale (actually, the underground car park, most famous as a setting for some scenes in the original Max Max movie). Fortunately, we always manage to escape again.
