Sunday, May 28, 2006Hey guys!
Writing this from Sydney at the moment, still feeling very fatigued and red-eyed from the 14 hour monster flight. It's direct, but always packed and very busy to work. The best bit about it is that the hotel has just been refurbished, it's in a great location, and I'm in a corner room, so I got lucky and scored really good views. TV's got Foxtel, big LCD screen and free DVD player. A room service menu cooked by Luke Mangan (the chef off the Today show), which in turn makes eating in a very dear experience. All main courses are $41.50! Bargain!
I did manage to see a little of Sydney though. Walked to Centrepoint tower, and snapped these shots.
This is the very pretty view of Darling Harbor
And a shot of Aussie Stadium, where they held the Olympic Games
The Hilton, where I'm currently staying, and the Queen Victoria Building located adjacent to it, and where I'll inflict some damage to the credit card later on.
A pretty average view of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. I think the glare of the pamphlets from the info desk add a nice rustic touch.
Another nice view of Darling Harbor.
Tomorrow morning I'm off to Christchurch. Have no idea what I'm going to be doing over there, but should be good, and the flight's only 3 hours so I'll be refreshed0 comments
