australia and new zealand - week 2 - sydney

hey everyone, sorry for the long delays between posts....

After our first week in Queensland, I went off to my class in new Zealand, and Kristie stayed in Australia. She was in Sydney for 8 days, and got to see a lot of the city.

This dude just chilled in the area where the tourists get off the cruise ships, posing for pictures and playing his didgeridoo. He made so much cash.

Inside the Shark Exhibit tube at the Sydney Aquarium. Ya, Australia is home to lots of things that can kill/ eat you.

One morning Kristie woke up to find that the Sydney Marathon route went right past her balcony.

The coolest clock/ calendar contraption ever to grace the inside of a mall. Available at Brookstone.

LOVE all of the pics...i think she is super cool and super brave to poke around a foreign place and have such a fun adventure on her own! Kristie is my hero!

Glad to see more pics of your trip. The digeridoo (sp) guy is pretty much what I imagined your trip would be filled with.

It's fun looking at all your pics. I would have seriously freaked out seeing all those bats in the trees...I'm glad you guys had such a fabulous time! Can't wait to go there someday!
