Day 2: Exploring the city, again.

Today, I whipped out my handy-dandy writer’s notebook (that has my original drawings from the Charlotte airport after visiting Sars for spring break) and took notes on a few things I thought we’re awkward in Australia.

So, that’s my social experiment for the day in the lovely city of Sydney, Australia.  Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Not as ghetto as our icecream trucks, but the song is just as annoying. AND they park outside Catholic churches, smart guys.


Botanical Gardens aka Bat Cave


Little water hole, perfect for snail viewing.


Typical Opera House post card shot, taken by yours truly.

Australian Roots and me


Rock snails.


And then, lastly, I was walking the bridge in Darling Harbor and it’s about to be a big boat show in Sydney and Jessica Watson’s boat “Ella’s Pink Lady” was in the harbor for the show.  She’s the youngest girl to sail solo around the world, even though it doesn’t count because she’s under 18.  She just finished recently in May and she’s quite extraordinary.  Not to mention, she’s dating the boy who’s the youngest solo boy sailer for the world (which I thought was interesting, because everyone knows I love, love connections.  Especially, the missed connections on craigslist, which are in Aussie’s free gossip newspapers when you get on the train and people actually reply to each other, “I think you’re talking about me…”).  So, anyway,  here’s the picture of her boat, and the wiki on her story.

    Loved your blog today, very informative of everyday Australia and Australians. Keep that part coming. I love hearing about the similarities and the differences. Also, great pictures, and I especially love the one with you and the roots. Great photo.
