Sydney Day 4
It has turned a little bit cold and blustery with intermittent showers. I don’t know what the latitude of Sydney is, but I’d say the climate feels like San Francisco in spring (it’s spring down here). So it’s a little chilly right now, and the wind blows up from the harbor like it comes off Lake Michigan in Chicago.
We trekked all over the city for two days and we have completely worn ourselves out.
We went to the Australia Museum where we learned how the Brits displaced and made slaves out of the Aboriginal natives in the name of colonization, just like they did in Africa and America, with similar resentments and uprisings as outcome.
We went to Harry’s Café de Wheels (so named because it started its life as a wagon in the late 40s), which is a landmark joint and has pictures of the famous people who have eaten there over the years.
Sydney is a great city—easy to get around, very compact, and we’ve done all of Sydney we wanted to do. Tomorrow we board the cruise ship.
