on a picturesque bay, Sydney is one of the most beautiful
cities I've seen. The city literally glitters both day and
night, perhaps because of the dry air or lack of pollution.
There's lots to do, and getting around is quite convenient
- by bus, train, ferry, monorail, and light rail. My favorite
activities were visiting the fantastic aquarium (definitely
one of the world's best), a cruise around the harbor, and
the delicious Asian food courts in Chinatown. We also took
a day-long tour out of the city to the nearby Blue Mountains.
