Saturday and we decided to go on an epic walk to see Centennial Park, since we'd already been to Bicentennial Park a few weeks ago. We walked from our lodgings near Central Station through Surry Hills (felt like walking up a fifty degree incline!), past Moore Park and the Entertainment Quarter and to the rolling hills and lakes of Centennial Park. It was a really nice place to hang out with loads of picnics happening and people out strolling for the day. There is also a road to the south of the park called "Alison Road" - it's mine!

On the subject of food... there is so much great food here in Sydney. We've had a bit of everything, Indian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, western style and even Mexican.

Aloo matar - potato chunks and peas in curry sauce. Yum!
