Sydney, Sydney, Sydney!

I'm in Sydney! I only have five days to explore this great big huge wonderful city! This is my last Australian destination, so I'm going to make the most of it. I'm now 15 hours ahead of home, so it makes it harder to call, but I'll try to give you a shout tomorrow.

I landed here at 5:45 this afternoon, took the train into town, found my hostel. It's the nicest big city hostel I've been in so far. I went to the pub for dinner and played trivia with my roommate. We didn't win anything. I couldn't really understand the host's accent or answer any of the pop culture/political/local news questions. They asked if an ant is intoxicated which side does it always fall to, left or right? I have no idea, but I wish I did. I think about ants enough, I"ll have to google the answer later.

Tomorrow I'm getting my hair cut, shopping at the huge, cheap Paddy markets, then going to the musical! I'll probably stroll over to see Darling Harbour too.

I've had a really great time the past few days with Pat in Brisbane. I got to see the city, ate wonderful food, watched a huge lightening storm from the highrise, and somehow came out of the casino with $47. I'll try to get some of my pictures up soon.

Night! Cass
