Back in Sydney for the second time we stayed with Paul's cousin Sarah and her husband Phillip (who Paul hadn't seen for 12years!) and their 5year old daughter Caitlin (who is already adamant that she is Australian not English!!). There must be something about us being in Sydney that affects the weather cause we had a lot of rain again this weekend but we still had lots of fun and some trips out. On Saturday Phil & Sarah drove us out to a riverside cafe & we also visited Palm Cove which is where the beach scenes for Home & Away are filmed - Mandy was very excited by this!!! Even more exciting was the news we got on Sunday that Mandy's sister Nicki had had a baby boy - Joe - which meant we had an excuse to drink some sparkly!!! We had a great time this weekend and Sarah even cooked us a lovely roast dinner on the Sunday night - its great when you get to eat the food you miss most! On Monday morning we said our goodbyes and hopefully it won't be so long until we get to see them again.... After being dropped off in the city centre we took a bus out to Bondi beach where we met up with Mandys friend Sandra for coffees and breakfast - she had only flown into Sydney the day before so we just about managed to meet up. Then we got a train to the airport and took our next flight to Jakarta, Indonesia. This is the 21st country we will have visited on our trip so far and we are really looking forward to exploring South East Asia over the next few months...........
