A look back: First day in Australia

26 07 2010

A missed connection in Brisbane didn’t get us to Sydney til around noon on the first day, and our bags didn’t arrive on the flight to Sydney. So it was off to Parramatta from the airport to get some rest and then go eat dinner.

On the way, we drove through Sydney. Australia is bidding for the 2022 World Cup and the country was very much behind their Socceroos in South Africa. There are signs everywhere urging people to back the country’s bid. Sadly, it’s a more visible campaign than that of the U.S.

Driving is always strange when you are on the opposite side of the road from U.S. streets.
