Dinner on the "ROCKS"

First Look at Sydney

Opera House

A Rolls Wedding on the Harbour

Hay Market

The flight was long but we got to watch lots of movies. Once in Sydney we picked up our car and drove to our first location. Downtown Sydney.. the hostel that we booked on line was in the heart of Chinatown. Our room was at the top of three long flights of stairs. Parking is at a premium.. it was going to cost us $85 for the night but we lucked out and a couple directed us to a much cheaper location. But the problem was that we forgot where we parked our car twice.. We are definitely getting a lot of walking in. We then walked down to the "Rocks" and the Opera house. We had dinner in the heart of Sydney at a great little place. We then had our first night in Australia. The window was open to the rush of traffic which did not slow till around 4 in the morning. And the temperature was probably 35 Degrees in our room. But we had a great night sleep. We then went to the Hay Market bought some fruit and got my free Paddy's market bag. We then went swimming and sun tanning at Bondi beach and walked in the Bondi Market. Next we drove south to Wollongong and checked into another hostel. Its in a big old house really cool. We will try to put some pictures up for you all as soon as we figure out how. Our windshield is really clean as Elton is still a little challenged on the right hand driving. He has only taken out a few curbs. Tomorrow we will head a little further south. We are taking our time as south is very hot right now and we are trying to get as use to the weather as quite as possible.
