I’m not much into praying, but for all the people touched by the Virginia Tech shootings, you’re in my thoughts.
Darling Harbor, I love you... Day 64
Today I actually woke up later than usual, around 8:30am. I went down to the common kitchen and grabbed some of the cereal that I bought last night. Then I hopped on the monorail and went to Darling Harbor again, I’m quite fond of it. I didn’t know what to do, so I went to an IMAX film. It was a movie called 300; it was about the Battle of Thermopile… or something to that effect. It was a lot of blood and war, so not really my forte, but I digress. After the movie, I walked around Darling Harbor for a bit, then I found a nice spot to sit down and write again. Apparently Sydney makes me want to write. After a while, I went down to a place called Paddy’s Market, which is an extreme version of The Gibraltar Trade Center. I thought of Cat when I walked in the door. Anyways, they gave me a free bag, so I win. Then I met some guys from New Zealand, one of them had just completed an Iron Man Triathlon, I'm very impressed. Today I realized that I am able to distinguish an Australian accent from a Kiwi accent. Not gonna lie here, it wasn’t that exciting of a day, I was going to do some other stuff, but it was really overcast and it would have been a waste to do it then. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get down to Bondi Beach, as well as checking out the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House up close. On a way more exciting note, I think that I know where the Olympic grounds are, so I want to get there on Saturday afternoon. I’m stoked. I learned something new today, I didn’t realize that New Caledonia was a French speaking nation, but the ladies sitting across from me on the monorail today were from New Caledonia and they were definitely speaking French. Well, I’m going to sign off, I might go see a movie with my Canadian roommate later on tonight… or I’ll fall asleep.
