Living in China there are a number of things that I just have to go without because either they don’t make them there, they don’t sell them there or they don’t have my size. I was able to find four things today that I would never find in China.
Cute shoes in my size – 9West – Westfield off of Martin Place
Australian oysters – Garfish on Manly Wharf
Stongbow Cider – we talked about this before
Peanutbutter M&M’s – everywhere
And, to top it all off, I got to finally see the Sydney OperaHouse up close. It is an impressive building and I was excited about seeing this Australian landmark. I am a little surprised with the fact that it is not really that big. I thought it was much bigger. I am talking, Louisiana Superdome big. It was more like Frisco, Texas Community Center size.
Regardless, the highlight of the trip so far is seeing the Opera House from a boat on the Bay. Beautiful.
