One foot on the ground
SETTING THE COURSE
On Saturday we woke, walked to the beach, had a swim in Mahon Pool and after a fruit breakfast we caught a bus into the city. Buses are the main form of public transport in Sydney and there's a great link from the end of our street straight into to the city.
We walked for four hours around the Harbour City. It was full of vibrant energy and there were literally hundreds of waterside bars and restaurants between Darling Harbour and the Opera House. Street performers pushed themselves to entertain with highly risky acts. We dropped into the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Opera House. The city is a truly exciting and envigorating place.
In the evening Miranda cooked and we had some great discussion over a few bottles of wine with Dan and Fiona. Bed at 11 and a full night sleep until 7. We seem to have defeated the jet lag.
