The following two photos are from my first weekend in Australia. I participated in the 8th annual "Fridge to Fridge." This involves 80 guys on bikes, some of them custom made just for the event, biking to about 8 or 9 different homes in the Sutherland Shire, and essentially having a beer or two at each stop, with a big party being held at the final stop. Sounds dangerous, probably is a tad, but I walked away unscathed. The theme was the Beer-jing (Bejing) Olympics. So everyone had to dress up as a country. Curt and I had cardboard boxes on and we represented Cuba. How patriotic of me.
I took this photo at the koala sanctuary in Brisbane. Not a bad photo for a camera I bought at Wal-Mart. There was this really energetic koala that stood out. His name was actually Ryan.
And here I am feeding a kangaroo. I was a little nervous because everytime I see a kangaroo on TV, it is kicking someone in the chest.
This is a shot of the Harbour Bridge with a Royal Caribbean ship in the foreground. It brought back memories seeing the ship in port.
This is the same day, although the second time I went to have a look around Sydney. This time I walked all the way up to the Opera House. It truly is an amazing piece of architecture.
Not the greatest photo, but it was another cloudy day in Sydney. This is the world famous Bondi Beach. Usually, on a sunny day, there are thousands of people here. When I return, I'll take a better one.
Happy New Year!
