After a pleasant 4 hour flight we arrived in Sydney around 5:00 pm. In the last 10 days in Fiji they have had only 2 days of nice weather and we got them both. We are making up for it today
in Sydney as it is like a Seattle June day, rain and wind. We will grab an umbrella and walk the downtown area and visit the opera house, Sydney bridge, and possibly a pub.

Our hotel is beautiful and we are on the 27th floor overlooking the harbor, bridge, and opera house. Because of my status at Marriott we have 5 nights free and access to the concierge lounge, it doesn't get better than this.

Good day for touring the Opera House and to get an appreciation of its unique architecture and engineering. Good example of poor project management as it went from a $7mm, 3 year project estimate to a $100mm, 16year project. Probably worth the overrun as it is spectacular.

Afternoon was spent walking the Rocks district, lunching in a pub, and walking the Sydney bridge.

Sydney is a great city and certainly worth the visit.
