First day in Sydney

Sydney coming in for a landing. You can see the Opera House in the right center of the picture.

Long flight, packed like sardines! Saw Oahu at night from high altitude!

After landing, getting our bags, going through customs -- having thrown out our peanut butter crackers and dark chocolate M&Ms, that might have been classifiable as contraband (foreign food/plant material). Afterwards the customs agent said they were probably OK. We wandered around Hyde Park until our hotelroom was ready.

Men playing chess.

An Australian white ibis. According to the guidebooks, they like to hang out in the rubbish bins in Hyde Park. This one liked to follow me around.

After our room was ready, we crashed for several hours (22hrs and 14 time zones does that).
