Thanks to my generous sister and elderly aunt, I was able to fly home for Chrissie to be with the fam! Needless to say, mum and dad were a bit dumbstruck when I walked through the back door and shouted SURPRISE! I've never seen my mother so quiet...
Needless to say, I didn't waste time getting right into the "aussie" experience, heading straight to a Kylie Minogue concert 2 days after arrival with brother Mike! I also had Ruth, one of the infamous English 'backpackers' with me (later to be known as Backpacker 1 aka Ruth and Backpacker 2 aka Chelsea Ford), who I'd picked up in Bogor. Much to our delight, the two stayed and hung out with the Engel/Todd camp over Christma, which incidentally was 'the best christmas EVER!' (inside joke)
It was great to be back in Sydney, with blue skies, sun, sand, good friends and good cheese! The dairy, bread and wine is all a bit lacking in Indo, so I was a bit feverish with my consuming... 

Two weeks and 20 kilos later, I capped off the trip perfectly with a night at the moonlight cinema in Centennial Park on Boxing Day. And yes, we saw Mamma Mia the sing-a-long version. And yes- we were all up singing and dancing!!
Thanks everyone for such a great time in ol' Sydney town! If I missed you on this round, I'll see you in March when I'm back for good (well for awhile at least...)
