I Come From A Land Down Under....
Prior to the climb the three of us had lunch at a cool little mom and pop restaurant located just under the bridge in the Rocks district. The Rocks is the location of Sydney's oldest pubs, hotels, and is the site of the first European settlement on the continent, so it holds a lot of history. It also sits under the bridge and right next to the opera house, so location is choice if you're looking to relax and enjoy the city.
I promise to have lots of photos soon. I'm currently a slave to the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour internet scheme, which limits what I can do. Instead, when I get to the next hotel I will have better access to load up the photos.
I'm receiving emails on my blackberry from the firstname.lastname@example.org account if anyone has any questions or specific requests for photos.
It's now 0620 in the morning on Sunday and I'm off to jog around the Opera House and watch the sun rise from the Pacific and over the the Harbour. Using a new camera this time around, so hopefully the photos will turn out nice.

You go ahead & climb the bridges - I'll sit here & look at the pictures - trying all the while not to do that "chunky" thing you mentioned a post or two ago. Heights don't thrill me too much. :-)3:33 PM
Sounds like y'all are having a great time. I can't wait to see more pictures.7:44 PM
