Peter had a good visit in Sydney. He and his room mate, Robert, ate at the Hard Rock Cafe, where they enjoyed the wax statues of celebrities and some regular food. The weather in Sydney is nice with temperatures in the 70's. He is keeping busy with work and performances, mostly production-type shows. Today is a turnover day, with a new group of cruisers arriving. The last group of guests brought lots of children with them, many of them families celebrating Christmas. The group arriving today, planning to celebrate New Year's Eve aboard, is a more adult crowd. A big party in the promenade of the ship is planned for New Year's Eve. Since they are on New Zealand time, they will be some of the first people in the world celebrating the arrival of the new year, 16 hours earlier than we will in Indianapolis!
