Not alot more to say on this. Still cool the 2nd time around! No sheep this time. Baaaaaaaaa.
G'day to all,
sorry that there are no photo's et. Can you believe that there are no decent Internet Cafes in Times square! So that's were we are sat now waiting to go and see a stand up comedy show at the Improv Comedy club. It's an interactive Improv comedy club whatever that means and the tickets were $5 provided that we buy a couple of drinks. Sydney was really cool. Cindy took me to Darling Harbour, Circular quay, manly beach, Bondi beach and coogee where we poped in to see Paul and Mira. Had a really good night. Paul is famous for getting people pissed and he certainly lived up to his reputation on us even though we had a 20hr flight to NY the next day. There was an incident with a flip-flop which all seems a bit hazy now but was very funny at the time and we have some pictures of it resting on top of a scafolding pole in a building site. Also those pies you introduced me to (Paul) were repeating on me for the entire 20hr trip! Sydney is full of fitness freaks due to its long beach front walks and park environment.

Sadly he did not get to perform on this occasion!
There are plenty of places to get hammered though and watch the sun go down! Bondi beach was full of posie surfey types, there were some excellent cafes nearby too with a view of the beach. Cindy and I walked from Bondi to Coogee one day which took a couple of hours and had some spectacular views.
So now we are in NY. We have already found ourselves a regular Diner just over the road from our hotel which offeres massive portions of food. I have put the diet on hold for a while, whilst Cindy is managing to resist the most tempting foods. There is Cheese on everything, and fries too although the salads that they serve up in all the Diners and restaurants is also very good. We have been taking regular caffeine hits today as we were out to 4am this morning walking around times square. Time really flies here! We will update you you as soon as we get another chance if not we will see you on Thursday. It's been emotional
Been to see the statue of liberty today. That comedy club was really good by the way. All done in
a 'Who's line is it anyway style', really clever and they picked on us brits because of our accents. Now were off to see the Empire state building and the Chrysler if we have time. Hopefully get some tickets for the lion king show too.
It's been fun to share our times with you all and we look forward to meeting you soon. Although we are having second thoughts on flying back (only kidding kate). We've got the travel bug now!
