Boys and girls, it’s a LOOOOOOONG way down here. I think we were 23 hours in the air, plus several hours in airports. Hey, it’s going to be a beautiful day tomorrow, I know because it’s already tomorrow here. It is 4:00 in the afternoon on Saturday here and 9:00 Friday night back in California.
You obviously know this is the Sydney Opera House, but it’s the first picture I took and good proof that we’re here. We’ll get up close and personal with it later, but from here it looks as if the “sails” are made of interlocking ceramic tiles. Circular Quay, which is the waterfront area, is a five-minute walk from our hotel.
We walked around an area called “The Rocks,” which is the old town and waterfront, and had lunch with great people-watching. The Aussies don’t look much different from us, and they are exceedingly friendly. Everyone is. Sydney is a squeaky clean, lovely city.
We’re back in our hotel for a nap before heading back out to see what’s happening on a Saturday night. See you real soon!
