yesterday was cool, it was still raining, but we explored the city a bit more, and dodged the showers. we bought a city hopper ticket to use on the trains and stuff. we went on a ferry to manly island, and it was a nice trip past the opera house and the bridge, its weird cos the opera house is not really white like we thought it was , its more of a yellowy brown colour - still an amazing building and cool sight to see. we had a quick look around manly island, and then on the way back tried to figure out which was Tom Cruises house on the river - dont think we found it though.

got bargainous dominoes pizza for tea, and ate that outside a strip club near our hostel - was lovely. in fact i dont think i have ever seen as many strip clubs in one row, there are literally thousands of them - was very amusing watching all the old men go in !!!

got free beers in a pub and then went to meet up with ben. he literally lives two streets away from where we were stayin. Had a few beers in the local next door, then headed to the bottle store and bought rum and coke and beers, and headed back to his apartment. its really cool, and nice and clean!!!! enjoyed the homelyness of the toilet and having a sofa to relax on. ahhh, there was a pie van at the end of the street which did british pies, was very popular with all these healthy australians, so had pie and mash and gravey and chilli and mushy peas - ahhhh so good! drank a hell of a lot and then passed out in the mingin hostel which wasnt that bad when you are drunk!!!

Checked out today, what a relief and plannign to go the aquarium and leave our bags at bens until later when we will get the bus to go to canberra.

got headache so will upload piccies and go and get some fresh air! As usual chris is feeling fine, and he had more than me!
