Sydney sort of reminds me of LA, but uncannily clean. There's a huge Chinatown with some good deals and food. There are plenty of bars and they have a lot of specials for backpackers. I'm not really feeling these joints though. There is just something missing that I can't really put my finger on. Anyways, I met an American guy named Steve in this hostel. He's surfing the world and biding his time until his visa expires. We hit it off and ended walking around and looking at all the young pilgrims that came to Australia for world youth day. Apparently, there are half a million christians here. They from all over and are all over the place--that with the exception of King's Cross. I guess the Pope told them not to come down here. They listened.
Additionally, I went to the Sydney aquarium which was really cool. I got closer to a shark that I probably ever will and learned the difference between crocs and alligators. Learn something everyday I guess...
I've decided to go on a 3 day bus tour down to Melbourne so I can see the countryside and maybe have a small baby taste of the Outback. I'll let you know what happens...
