today matt and i headed to the city to watch the ashes... i guess. hahah well i wasnt really keen on going and spending 8 hours watching cricket but i tagged along to the city.. the train was crowded... there were alot of people heading into the city and the majority of them were headed to watch the ashes.. since it was a national holiday i guess no one had anything else to do.. hop out the train and walk to the stadium.. matt whips out his england flag to support his country.. along with thousands of other englishmen.  there were alot of english people there.. england was ofcourse winning.. so i guess the support for the aussie team was wavering.. we meet up with rob (matts former roomate) and he has already bought tickets for them to go..   they went it the stadium.. and and walked agaisnt the crowd towards the city center.. it seems i was the only one walking the other direction. hahah but it was alright.. went to the museum of moving pictures.. played some video games... then headed to the square to watch some street performers and the ashes on the big screen.. alot of people were there too watching it..and it was pretty fun with everyone cheering and all.. i got a big hungry watchin all these people eat fries and so i also went and got some from lord of the fries... exp but good.. then i walk around the city for a bit and see some cool little streets.. then off to park for a little sleep.. not sure how long i slept.. but i woke up and my legs were burnt.. it still stingsnow actually.. luckily i covered my face with my book.. ahahah then back to federation square to watch more of the cricket.. i found it boring at first but then i couldnt stop watching it.. weird.. fell asleep again at the plaza.. hahah   anway the session finished for the day and everyone was heading back into the city.. see matt standing over me while i was sitting watching some british tv on the big screen.. grab a quick bite to eat at hungry jacks and decide to head back home.. good day.. cold and hot and tiring but fun..
