  2. Beautiful 🙂 I loved Sydney. I spent 4 days in Sydney when I was 19 years old. I was billeted with this funky John & Yoko like couple. I was in a German Canadian Dance Troupe for three years that was touring these Australian German Clubs, over the Carnival Festival in February.

    Wonderful memories of this place. Toured the harbour on hover craft, wandered around the Opera House…inside and out. Ran into this neat chalk drawing street artist…does incredibly vivid political statements. Vibrant and dynamic city.

    Man I would love to go back. This photo gives me almost a catch in my throat. It was a wonderful time.

    • Thank you for letting me know Paula, I’m pleased the picture resonated with you, I love walking around the Opera House and the harbour too 🙂
