Prior to today, I had not driven in a foreign country, Canada doesn’t count. While, the insertion into the Ford XR6 required great acrobatics each time, I was able to successfully motor us outside of Sydney and into the Blue Mountains, about 2 hours west of town. We hiked around 3 different spots throughout the day and saw a couple waterfalls too. All in all a gorgeous day, though we were wearing about every piece of clothing we had. When Elizabeth said, “Hey look, it’s 5 degrees from freezing” (thanks to the metric system), it was pretty chilly at times (41 Fahrenheit). Though based on current weather in Minnesota, we’re about equal.
The flag below was at sunset on Darling Harbour a few days ago, Elizabeth has been posting a ton and I forget to get things out there when she’s working so hard on it each day.
Tomorrow I start to work, which was after all, one of the reasons to come here in the first place. I have some meetings around town and am looking forward to meeting a number of my co-workers on their home turf.
Elizabeth & Samantha on the Trail!
