Went into the city yesterday to register with employment agencies and open a bank account. Hopefully there’ll be work by sometime next week. In the meantime, just exploring things are being amazed by the differences, such as the stars. It took me by surprise that what I thought were thin clouds in the midst of the stars was actually…the Milky Way, visible to the naked eye!

Took a day trip out to Fort Dension, which is a small island out in the harbour which was initially used as a jail & defense about 200 years back. Pics of Circular Quay also included.
- Darling Harbour
- Circular Quay
- The Rocks
- Sydney Opera House
- Harbour Bridge
- Botanic Gardens
- Fort Denison
- Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach was an experience, as we decided to walk and, ahem, weren't quite sure of exactly how to get there;) Ended up walking well over an hour in temps close to 90, I'd guess. Then, after we got there and had some lunch, it started to rain. Didn't stop us getting in the water. I'm quite convinced I've never actually been in the ocean before. Forgot it was going to be salt water until I got a big wave the face. The water was far less than calm, so I simply stayed as near to the shore as the kiddies were, but it was quite enjoyable.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, by the way. Didn't actually realise it was the day until after 2pm today. We're celebrating tomorrow, and due to the Harbour Bridge having it's 75th anniversary, there are no festivities:( I don't think we can get green beer here, but regular will do;)

- Voting and recycling are mandatory
- They have no one or two cent coins, so prices get rounded up or down. Steve told me to keep a log, as it will show me it all evens out, but I was still salty about losing my first 2 cents:<
- Sunbathing topless is legal and overall, I would guess I am the most clothed woman Steve has ever dated judging by how these women dress, or how little they dress. Please someone tell me next time I'm home if I've turned into a hoochy;)
