G’day from Sydney

We arrived Tuesday after a good flight and have been enjoying Sydney. Good weather. Lots to see. Very comfortable place.

After wandering around the city on Tuesday and a good night’s sleep, on Wednesday we took a ferry to Manly and did a lovely shore walk through parks and bush land part way back to the city.

Thursday was Inge’s first day at the conference. I went out walking for the day: across the harbour bridge to North Sydney, more coastal walking and a ferry ride back to the city.
It is Christmas but the warm sunshine gives it a strange feel. Unlike Canada, there is far less Christmas hype and decorations are fewer but more tasteful.

We have a few more days here and look forward to them.
