Sydney at Last!

by cunningstuff

Not one for using pics, especially my own, but this was my first trip to CBD Sydney, with a fly by of Circular Quay.

Here are entering the M5, and on our way!

I know it sounds stupid, but to a yank newly arrived, the clean gutters of the Aussie freeway are amazing!

This pic is only for yanks with a strong heart, gas prices oh my!

Brick facade on one side, modern glass and steel on the other, this is pretty common in Sydney, both old and new.

This is Nick Cave’s roadies unloading for a show, I did not get to go, as this was only my second night.

Here you can see why I do not post my own pics, but this is a festival in Newtown.

Here we are entering downtown (known as CBD) Sydney!

We just drove around, but here is Harbor Bridge through a door into Circular Quay.

Obligatory cathedral pic, St. Mary’s in downtown Sydney!

The building center left is the public broadcasting building, and yes, those are plants hanging out of an upstairs garden!

This is a slightly obscured pic of Archibald Fountain, in Hyde Park.

Mostly as well, to let everyone know I have made it to Sydney, and am happily installed as a tourist for now. My Lovely Queen and I are getting along, and everything looks good for now. I had a horrible trip, but once landed was just fine.
