Well, I made it. As you may have guessed. It was 30 hours of airplanes and airports begining to end and I adjusted quite well. Not really much jet lag at all. Sydney is amazingly beautiful, more than I even imagined. Been kind of a whirlwind few days meeting up with Judy's friends ...suprisingly I have been really good at remembering everyone's names...I usually am horrible..I 'm usually lost without name. Perhaps its the laid back quality of life that is harder and harder to find in the states...even Missoula.
Last night met up with more of Judy's mates. We went to a place called the Iceberg's Club. Wonderful dinner...amazing view overlooking Bondi Beach. A great view at night for sure. So the skinny on the club is that it is the Australian version of the Polar Bears...kind of. They have a pool that they keep at winter temperatures. I didn't try it out, but my guess is that it's nothing compared to the Montana Polar Bears who swim in 20 degree frozen lake water...of course the Montana Polar Bears typically don't stay in longer that 30 seconds.
Grabbing a plane here in a few and then heading to the Western coast of Perth. Which is about the same distance as New York to Los Angeles. I hear that it is beautiful. Just wanted to let everyone know I have arrived safe and sound and having a blast.
Haven't really taken the camera out yet. Will get post more images (one's I actually took versus stealing from the internet)...promise
