Today we hit the beach with the rest of the town and enjoyed a first taste of our new life. It is so great having Megha here, we have had such a laugh already. The sky clouded over after a couple of hours so we grabbed some lunch at Five-O's and then went back to the hostel for a bit of a nap. We are both having weird intense dreams so we've decided to write them down, maybe they will confer some amazing wisdom in due time!
At 7pm we got up and wondered what to do for Saturday night. Neil had suggested The World Bar in Kings Cross that is free before 10pm and does $15 cocktails so we headed down there only to find they weren't letting anyone else in anymore. WSe might have done had we not been misdirected 3 times by blokes - word of warning, ask girls for directions, they don't try and mislead you for japes.
We ended up at The Dragonfly which was perfect as I'd had recommendations for there before. It's a great club, really well laid out, great lighting and seating, well-dressed crowd. We felt a bit scruffy in our ballet pumps and flip-flops compared to the Paris Hilton blondes in tall stilettos and trendy dresses but we decided just to do shots of sambucca and dance like we didn't care. :) We had a wicked night, me acting as wingman to Megha, and us both having a lot of laughs.
We left at 2.30am and joined a queue for a taxi on the main drag but no taxis were stopping, because it was getting towards 3am changeover and there were going different directions home. We pooled resources with two fellas who were going in the same diection but mistakenly dropped out of the queue 1 from the front to set off in search of a called taxi meeting us under the Coca Cola sign (busiest junction in Sydney) in the name of Matt. Like we were ever going to find that taxi. Eventually we walked back to Oxford Street and caught the night bus back to Coogee, arriving home around 4am
