We stopped at another library to use the internet in the morning to get the address of where we had to apply for our Chinese visa's. We needed photos for our visa so we had to find a place that would print them out for us. We ended up getting them at a pharmacy that does passport photos, but only after some confusion about the size they had to be.
We had to drive deep in the heart of downtown Sydney to apply for our visa's and it turned out rather bad when we were unable to find a parking space when 1-they were all taken in a 5 block radius of where we had to be and 2-our van was too tall to fit into the carparks. So being the small town drivers we are we drove around searching with our GPS and finally after probably more than an hour we cursed the city and left the city!! (We were more than frustrated and tried not to talk to much on our way out for fear of taking our frustrations out on eachother)
We found a caravan park on the outskirts of Sydney and stayed there for the night, planning to tour around the Blue Mountains the next day
In true Jackie 'n James fashion luck was against us and when we got to our first lookout in the mountains it was pure white...the fog was so thick we couldn't see past the cliff we were on! We thought we'd go back to the car park and have something to eat to wait it out and the sun did come out but of course in the gorge/valley where the sights are it was still thick.
We decided we would go to Katoomba, the town by where the Three Sisters sight is in the Blue Mountains and check out a company that does canyoning and abseiling and stuff; when we got there though they were all booked for the day so that plan was out.
We ended up going to the library to finally call my (Jackie) dad for his birthday, and of course get a happy birthday wish myself!
The day never cleared up so we made our way back to the outskirts of Sydney...where we ended up just staying in a parking lot at a park for our last night in the van.
