I'm HERE!!!!

After 22 total hours on a plane and 8 hours of stopovers in various airports I have arrived.  I actually got here in the evening a couple of days ago but had to catch up on my sleep before I could even think of stringing together a couple of coherent sentences!

Anyhoo....I have already ben down to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay (in and around the Sydney Opera House) and have discovered this city is HUGE!  I have also determined that roundabouts make me seriously directionally challenged!  I have no idea where I am and can't get my bearings.  Additionally, what they say about us Canadians down here is Oz is correct.  We are never cold when we are outside but we are FREEZING cold in the house.  No central heating means I'm wearing pretty much ALL the pyjamas I brough with me. new best friend is a Snuggie.  Ugh....I'm so ashamed of myself!

I checked out the Sydney Aquarium and have have a hint for you who might want to know what I want for my birthday:  FYI....I NEED a platypus! Or a koala (went to the Wildlife Park too)!  Either or.  Surprise me.  Also....dugongs.  Check 'em out.  All they eat is lettuce and they are HUMONGOUS.  Just goes to show should just eat pizza and enjoy. 

So...mostly just a note to let you know I am here and safe and excited.....taking a ton of pictures which I will post as soon as I get my own computer up and running!

See you soon!!!
