Monday 14th February 2011 Ė I took the bus into central Sydney today. Its been about 6.5 years since I was last there but as I looked out across Circular Quay (which is rectangular, incidentally) it seemed as if it was only yesterday. Its funny how memories can distort time, or is it, how time distorts memories? As I travelled down the east coast I went through many places Iíve been through before yet didnít recognise at all, then others that I had really clear memories of in my head but didnít even see. Weird isnít it?
Anyway, the bus went over the Harbour Bridge (the other night on the ride we went through the Harbour Tunnel) so now all I need to do is get a boat across and Iíll have crossed it by most means.
I then took a tour of the Sydney Opera House. Wow Ė its impressive from the outside, but inside it really takes your breath away. Unfortunately they wouldnít let us take any pictures of the inside so Iíll just have to add those images to the reliable stack of memories in my head!Posted by Jill Maden at February 14, 2011 10:58 PM GMT
