What a beautiful city this is. Imagine an upside down Vancouver, but with some incredible buildings. We took a fabulous architectural tour of The Sydney Opera building which is one of the most striking man-made creations on earth. The result of a competition, the project was massively over budget and behind schedule when the engineers finally admitted they didn't know how to build it. The man who started the Opera house process returned afer years abroad to see the completed building; however, tipped off customs agents refused him entry as he had a briefcase filled with porn. To borrow a line from Bill Bryson "he never got to see his finest erection".

The time has come to end our trip... I'm actually writing this 2 months after coming home and I'll blame the tardiness of completion on more than procrastination. When I finish this blog it means the trip is really over.

On July 2 at 10 am we leave Sydney airport and even after a stopover in Honolulu we arrive in Vancouver on July 2 at 10 am. It hurts my brain to think about how that is possible. Maybe just a fast plane.
