Medal

So, the Australian Winter Olympic team... from the land down under... from the wide brown flat land of searing sun and steaming kangaroo shit... have finally managed to get a medal. That's right, Australia has got a Winter Olympics medal for the first time ever. Bronze. And while the rest of the country bathes in the euphoria, what I want to know is, why did it take so bloody long?!

Travel

Visiting Sydney

The first thing you notice about Sydney is how all the tourist attractions are within about a ten minute walk of one another. And that with a bit of careful aiming, you can get them all into one photo. The Sydney Opera House looks from a distance like giant sails against the sky, but up close it looks even more impressive. Makes you wonder why they went to that amount of trouble just for opera.
