Day 26 - Time off from work...

Ahh. I woke up this morning at 10:30 and it felt good. Finally a chance to sleep in; a morning where I was not in a rush to get my suit on, have breakfast, and rush to work. To be honest to you, it was starting to feel like I was back home in the sense that I'd get up and go to work everyday. But hey, it is needed, and so it is done. Thankfully, I do not have to work for any of the holidays. I have the 23rd to 26th off and the 30th to the 2nd off. That is AWESOME.

During this time, I am going to work on my blog, travel some places I have yet to be, relax and enjoy the holidays. It is going to be strange celebrating Christmas with the family confined to the little viewing area of a laptop or tv screen, but at least this technology is available, which is better than the alternative.

There are Christmas trees all throughout Sydney. A notable one is located in Darling Harbour, which is composed of hundreds of strings of lights and has a Kangaroo which hops all the way up to the top.

A way cool sight. Still the lack of snow is quite strange I'd say.


Onward. I am currently trying to upload some videos to my new youtube account. It is taking forever, I am not sure whether it is not working or that it is just a slow process. I will give it more time and see. But nonetheless, some videos of sharks and the aquarium are on the way, so heads up.

Mike, Henrik and I went to Pizza Hut again today. We have lots of food now. On the way we came across this awesome bull statue.


The statue is anatomically correct.

And I tamed this mighty beast FYI.


So hopefully you will have some new videos soon. But for now I need to get some groceries. I'll keep in touch, but from outside your touchable distance.

*Success. Check out these videos from the aquarium.

And this one of my favourite animal so far.
