Well, at least the weather is like Manchester - it's chucked it down for 2 days solid.
Still, it's dry in the bars (in one sense of the word) !
Met up with Phil yesterday, had a few beers in Kings Cross (that's the are next to where I'm staying), and went for a great Chinese.
Sydney has a cool China town - way bigger than Manchester has, and it's pretty lively, even on a wet Tuesday night ...
Ate roast suckling pig (Chinese style) - now that's decadence for ya !
Today (Wed) we were supposed to go on a Whale Watching trip, but it was too windy for the boats to go out. Instead, we ended up going to the aquarium.
It's actually a really great aquarium, with loads of big tanks set up like parts of the Barrier Reef.
Plus there are big sharks - swimming just an inch over your head in one place ... cooool.
After that, went for a meal at one of Sydneys most well know fish restaurant (so well known, that I've forgotten what it's called !). Had some really nice John Dory.
Was completely outclassed on the eating front, both yesterday and today, by Phil. Makes me feel thin...
Still no piccys - I haven't gotten round to getting a plug adapter yet, so my batteries are flat. I'm gonna sort that out tommorrow.
P.S. got a mobile today as well - number on the contact page.
