I need a little help here and knowing the members of the TRF I'm absolutely certain someone is in the know.

I've been PM'd a question that is way out of my field.

Apparently there is a description out there of what Mary was wearing when she and Frederik first met.
The person who asked have come up with black pants and a green blouse - but a white T-shirt also seems to have been an alternative.

So, can anyone help, please?
See it as a summer/winter challenge.

The magazine article I have of the night they met shows a knitted crop top with a halter neck tie. Sort of stripey horizontal colours mostly in green. Nothing flash or fancy. Her hair is tied back in a pony tail, and she is wearing gold drop earrings. Looks like jeans with a silver belt. This photo was on the dance floor. The second photo shows her eating and her hair is loose, but wearing the same top. She looks up in surprise, unprepared for the photo.

Any Australian Mary followers interested in checking out where she and Frederik spent time together in Oz before the Danish journalists identified her just a month later...

...Channel Nine's "Getaway" next Saturday evening is doing a report on "El Questro".

The couple went there in October 2002.

Interesting, Sun Lion.

You can read about it here in an article from my archive: https://app.box.com/s/a1hennyazqwoui0t7tple9gwt99h1olw

Hi Muhler.

Did you ever archive anything about Mary's time in Paris?

There used to be a blog from a young American guy who had been in the same class as Mary at the Transfer school, taking the course to become an instructor in teaching business English.

I used to have it "saved", but took my tablet back to factory settings when it got too many bugs and started to hang a lot - and wiped everything.

I remember he wrote in his post about how tough it had been - only he and Mary completed it.

I don't think it's around on the internet anymore.


Hi Tarlita.

Does you magazine article have any other photos from the night that Mary and Frederik met - other than the one of Mary at the table and the one of her back as she is dancing?

There used to be a photo of Frederik dancing with another young lady in the foreground with Mary dancing with someone else in the background, taken by someone in their group that first, or maybe second, night.

That too no longer seems to be on the internet.


(P.S. For Aussies and the El Questro feature - "Getaway" is on late afternoon next Saturday instead of it's usual timeslot because of the footy.)

Alas, Sun Lion.

My archive only goes back to around 2008 - with a few exceptions.

I hope someone will write a review or post a link when the show is aired.

This episode will soon be - if it's not already - on the internet, now that it has been broadcast Muhler.

I can't post links on my tablet, but "Getaway- 9Now - Channel 9" should bring it up. It will be the "latest episode" for a week.

Kathy Lette hosted, but didn't bring up CP Mary - although Nicole Kidman was mentioned twice.

You may find her on screen persona jarring.

(Australia is now so PC that Kathy is the only one left making jokes.)

Footage is good to give you an idea of the WA landscape - which of course the whole CP Family visited last year on their road trip.

I couldn't open your link above, but you have a very informative post some pages back in this thread with lots of detail of Mary and Frederik's El Questro experience.

I think the water-hole that Kathy is filmed in, is the same one quoted in your post as the one Mary took a dip in. (And which Frederik wouldn't!)

Thanks, Sun Lion.

Alas, it appears it is not possible to view anything outside Australia.

Before being discovered by the press, Mary and Frederik are reported to have visited many different parts of Australia together.

One place was Port Douglas in Far North Queensland.

A small and very beautiful place, I was there last year.

A lot of European tourists were there then too - visiting the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.

Some photos I took -

Thanks for the lovely photos Sun Lion. I've been there, some years ago now, and I agree the place is heavenly. If Frederik and Mary visited then I would imagine their romance would have only deepened in such surroundings.

A few more photos.

A caravan park/camping grounds and many, many resorts are along this beach - in behind the palms.

You can walk a few steps from wonderful swimming pools to this wide open beach where people cycle along the sand. (Bikes at the hotels, "fat" tyres for the beach)

The town is small, low-rise with some great places to eat and shop.

You can take a cruise up the river system on the other side and go crocodile spotting.

Made me fall in love with the tropics Curryong. I want to live next to that beach and go cycling the length of it each day!

A few more photos -

The bright green thing in the last photo is an enormus blow-up couch some-one had set themselves up on.

The caravan park/camping ground is just in behind these palms, the town centre at the other end of the beach near the headland.

Regular mini-buses from all the resorts to the town centre or a half-hour walk along this beach.

Crocodile farms, an old mountain train, sugar cane plantations, visits out to the reef, a chair-lift over part of the rainforest with a picturesque bohemian life-style village up in the hills. Wonderful part of the world.
