Where I stayed
51 Wiley Street - our home exchange
Yesterday it was raining so we went to see a movie. The theatre was very modern with leather seats and when you buy a ticket they actually assign seats. Great idea!
Today we did some more sight seeing in Sydney and took a ferry to Manly Island/Beach. There were SO many surfers there it is hard to believe that it is winter. The beach is beautiful.
We've started noticing a few things that are clearly Australian so I thought I would share:
Rice Bubbles (aka Rice Krispies)
Ginger Beer (the closest thing here to root beer)
Kangaroo road signs
Please place all RUBBISH in the bins provided
We also learned that UGG Australia is an american company that sells boots made in China. Real Uggs are here and are everywhere! They are boots made with sheep skin and wool.
