Sydney - part I


We arrived in Sydney early in the morning. Waiting for us at the airport was Sr Manuel Camelo, an old friend of my father, who has been living here with his family for twenty years and that is going to be our host during our stay in Sydney. And what a host! Manuel and his wife, Manuela treated us like Kings during the time we spent in Sydney.

Besides showing us around downtown in the first morning, they took us to the portuguese quarter several times for breakfast or lunch, introduced us to the portuguese community by taking us to one of the weekly saturday gatherings (bailarico :) ) and helped us making our moves in Sydney. We also had a great brasilian barbecue lunch at her daughter's place after which we spent the afternoon wandering around the famous Bondi beach.

Culturally speaking I only had time to look at St Mary's cathedral and walk around the city center. The rest will have to be checked once we're back from the road trip.
