Chets in Sydney!!:))
Great day seeing the city and the famous landmarks. Took the ferry to Manly beach and spent a couple of hours on the ocean front there, then back to the city and a bit of time at Circular Quay and the Rocks. Then back to our apartments to change before visiting the Sydney Conservatoire. Had a tour round and listened to the rehearsal for a world premier of a piece for violin and small ensemble. Then to the Opera House for a fantastic performance of Don Giovanni. A pinch yourself to believe you were there evening!
Tomorrow a few more hours sightseeing before flying on to Melbourne. More from there!!
Chets group said farewell to Purcell group this morning and flew to Sydney. Nice views from the air although lots of turbulence.
Found our apartments in the city which are great and we then walked to Sydney tower, the highest building in the city, and took the lift to the top. Fab views as the sky darkened and the city lights came on. Also a lightening show from distant storms.
Walked back to Chinatown and had a great meal with compulsory use of chopsticks!
Only one broken piece of crockery which was good going.
Looking forward to sightseeing day tomorrow, with visit to Sydney conservatoire late afternoon and then Don Giovanni in the opera house:)
Hope Purcell group have safe trip back and Catherine too of course. Missing you!
Can’t upload photos from here but will do so when in Melbourne later in the week. Nick and Sarah. Gday!!
