O – Opera House

My first day in Sydney and already I have had the trip of a lifetime.  We arrived at 6:45 am.  Breezed through customs and got to the hotel around 8:00 am. Had breakfast and then hit the streets.

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.
