My car !!!

after days looking for the perfect car, being disappointed that it would not be possible buying that perfect car, and this ended in actually buying a perfect car :-)
For a long time I dreamed about a 4WD to road trip Australia. I had a budget in mind and it didn't seem possible to buy a reliable car for that budget. In two days I decided to set aside my dream and buy a Ford or Holden Station Wagon. Being really disappointed I phoned my parents. They gave me the advice that actually didn't help or maybe it did after all...
I raised my budget and was able to buy a 4WD: 4x4 Jeep Cherokee from '94, automatic!!! I'm so excited! Next few days I need to get enough cash and then the plan is to leave Sydney on Thursday.
I actually did a test drive in a station wagon, but after 500m the car broke down: the garage hadn't put any gasoline in the car... how bad is that... Then I went to another car dealer and ended up with a perfect car!!!
Driving on the 'wrong side' of road is different and dangerous... I was happy the car dealer owner came with me and gave me a 'drivers lesson'... It's not so difficult, just have to get used to it :p
Finally I've been a tourist: after days of fun, partying, feeling trashed and looking for cars I went to see the Opera House, The Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach. Pics will follow later, because I don't have much time at the moment.
