A slightly slower paced day...

Sydney Tower as seen from Hyde Park.

I decided to take things a little bit slower today.  I decided to head out about 8:30 this morning after lounging around the room for awhile. 

I basically just wandered about kind of aimlessly.  I went through Hyde Park and worked my way over to the Domain and then roamed a bit more of the Botanic Garden.  While I was in the Botanic Garden I literally walked right through an area were they were filming "The Bold and the Beautiful".  I watched for a bit, but watching it was kind of boring and I don't know who any of the actors are.

I met my friend Tina for lunch in North Sydney, then explored North Sydney for a bit before heading back towards the room.  I need to get ready to go out in a while - Tina and I are seeing the stage version of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" tonight.  It's kind of funny - when I first saw the movie, I saw it with Tina.

A few observations:

Intellectually I know that Australians drive on the left side of the road, but it gets very confusing when you are trying to cross the street!  I don't know which way to look half the time!  And it gets more confusing - walking on the left of people instead of the right, and a shocker that I encountered today - revolving doors go the opposite direction!

I know what you mean about traffic heading a different direction. I've never been uncomfortable when actually driving, but I always look the wrong direction when attempt to cross streets on foot...and have had the daylights scared out of me several times!
