So, we get off the train from Katoomba with all our packs on. And the rail guy asked us where we were going, and we told him and he was like, "oh yeah - u can walk there, its just up the road!" So, we were like, "cool". and we walked. Mind you, we have our entire lives on our backs at the moment. We walk...and walk. OMG. over a mile UP a hill. Along the way though, we DO see a big fat bat sleeping on an electrical wire - so that was kinda cool.
We get to the park to find out that there are no lockers for our bags - so we have to carry the bags through the entire park!! (if u look at the pictures you will see our packs on us). But, we were able to get one of us in the park for free - love those discounts! We were able to hang out with kangaroos and feed them out of our hands and pet them and hang out. Alos were able to cuddle up to a couple of koalas
After the park, we went to our hostel in Bondi Beach.
Bondi Beach is another famous surfer town. The hostel was ... cozy. They crammed 5 bunk beds into a room that should have had no more than 3. The place was a dump, honestly. But, mostly English and Scotts lived here.
Downstairs was a bar where we met our local friends Patrick, Matt and Chris. Patrick was a really nice guy who came up to us and started talking with us for about 3 hours. he had a broken foot while his buddies were playing pool... They were celebrating matt getting off of a 3 year suspension for DUI.... That night we arranged to stay with them on that coming saturday. They are going to take us out. :D
The next day was kind of boring - just errands and such BUT GET THIS: someone turned in Matts phone to the police! So, while i do laundry, Mathew went back to Manly BEach Police Dept and picked up the phone. He also ran back to Dave and Lisa's and picked up the camera that we ordered from the "States".
We bought our airline tickets too: We leave for Indonesia 9/23 and then to Malaysia 10/22. :D Only one more night in this hostel and then we get to couchsurf with Peter....
