Oh Sydney you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind! Hey Sydney! Hey Sydney! (Part II)...
Tuesday was a repeat of Monday in many ways - we took the second Sydney Explorer Bus Tour - this time out to Bondi Beach. We broke up our journey by walking the coastal road from Bondi Beach to Bronte Beach. This has to be one of the most beautiful walks in the world. Amazing views, staggering cliffs and cute little picturesque bays and beaches. This walk was made all the more interesting between Bondi to Tamarama however by the 107 pieces of art that were installed along the way. On the rocks, in the seas and on the beaches. The exhibition is called Sculpture By The Sea and is "Australia's largest annual outdoor free to the public exhibition of contemporary sculpture". Great fun and at times very funny.

Later that day we met up with Dave, Scally, Russell and Richard to celebrate Dave getting his Aussie Citizenship. Well done, Dave! To receive his certificate Dave was dressed in an Australian flag, Aussie flag boxers and an Australian hat with corks hanging from it. He looked quite sweet - if a little bit like a super hero? Someone suggested 'Captain Australia'. Much champagne, more drinks, one A$5 steak plus beer and a small pub crawl later Dave was ready for bed. Unlike the rest of us who carried on the celebrations to the wee small hours. Last thing I remember is watching Shrek in a seedy club somewhere. God I was wrecked!
