After the 6am wakeful call, it was time for us to leave Jervis Bay and head on over to Sydney. We turned in our rental car and caught a taxi over to our hostel from the airport. Since we got there at 11am and we couldn't check in until at least 2pm, we decided to go on a hunt to find the closest bar that would air the NFL games being played on Saturday night (US time). We found a small bar right down the street, and they happily put on the Ravens game for us. Even though a Broncos fan from Chicago (who was also a Vikings fan? Band wagoner anyone?) came into the bar and was talking a little bit of smack to us, we were VERY pleased with good ole Joe Flacco's performance (especially with that 4th-quarter-20-some-seconds-left-game-tying-touchdown-pass). He made the University of Delaware students proud with that win!

Following the win, we headed to a small market nearby that came to The Rocks every weekend. Again, it was filled with homemade products, food, music, and selections from nearby small business owners. There was so much to browse through and look at; we each got a little something either for ourselves or for others back home!

When we checked into our hotel, we decided it was a good day for laundry and trying to figure out what the heck we were going to do the rest of the week. There's so much to do that we didn't even make a decision for Monday's plans until about 11pm the night before. We'll see out it goes!
