BREAKFAST WITH A US MARINE
In the morning he insisted on taking us for Breakfast and as I eagerly tucked in to my full ‘English’ he looked disappointed. It turned out he couldn’t eat it. Years of army ready meals in the Marines had supressed his appetite and his breakfast went untouched.
These photographs were taken during 2010 - 2011 in Thailand, Malaysia, Australia and Japan.
During this time I met US Marine Josh. He was on one of his scarce breaks from service in
Afghanistan and it was his first visit to Cairns, Australia. It was also the first time he had slept in a dorm rather than a hotel and told Angela and I it was ‘the first time he has slept in a room with a girl before’. He was so impressed with his visit he planned to make the most of everyday of his trip and buy a house in Cairns when he retired.
