When we got on the plane the first thing this dude does in front of Dean is throw his seat back all the way like an asshole. We haven't even gotten off the ground. So I asked Dean how is infectious Flu like symptoms were doing. This guy imediately puts on this SARS mask and asks the Stewardess to switch seats. This trick usually works, but the flight was way over booked so Dean was stuck with mask man infront of him for 14 hours.
We landed on Wednesday the 28th did our best to try to stay up till a reasonable hour to avoid feeling all jetlagged the next day.
We walked around the area we are staying and found some funny shops. If anyone is looking for a cool storefront check it out.
Mexican food. hmmm... I am not sure what to make of Australian mexican food. If anyone has any good suggestions I am up for hearing them. They did have a chandelier made out of Corona bottles.
I think this is what they call a sexual "in-da-window"
David Kramer suggested we eat at IKU, which is a cool natural vegan resturant.
We were starving from the flight
The food was pretty sweet. We got some curries, noodle salads, vegie burger, and a couple of other things.
Overall, the food was really good. We demolished our plates.
No Burger King for them in Australia.
No sir. but they do have something better...
These birds are everywhere. they look like something out of a cartoon.
I was incredibly tired and feeling terrible, but it was too early in the day to go to bed with out being mega jettlagged.
This was such a rad tree tunnel.
a cool fountain in the park.
So many people were just chillin gout on the grass in the middle of the park. Sydney has a real mellow vibe.
Even downtown has some mushroom architecture.
Things can get heavy though. We came across this hunger strike in the middle of downtown Sydney. They are asking for the Australian government to back the cease fire in Shri Lanka.
It was really intense. more info here if you are interested http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/05/11/news/srilanka.php
Some history for you: Australia was founded by a ragtag bunch of criminals, but, Aye? did you know they still had real pirates cruising the harbor! for real!!!
Has anyone seen the footy of Reynolds backside 180 this set?
I overheard someone saying that this was based on the shape of women's shoulder pads from those jacket in the 80's. Is that true?
This is that special kind of friendship, when a man and a woman really love each other kinda friendship.
If you touch this you will turn into a red cactus monster. SWEET!!!
Dude! take my picture.
It really does feel like you are hanging out in a postcard
These people were all psyched to hang at the Opera house
We went for a walk around Sydney. My stomach was killing me. I felt like shit. but we still managed to take a bunch of pictures.
This tree is getting ready for its 55th birthday soon...
We saw so many of these cars around Sydney. They look like sleek El Caminos.
We really are the ugliest Americans. I am sure this is some sacred cultural Govt building that we just showing no regard for. Take that Australia!
Thats it. We left on a Monday and went to sleep on a Wednesday. Now are ready for our first show today in Sydney. Psyched!!!
