I've made it back from Syndey, after a very long and uneventful and did I mention long flight back on Friday. Here are some more pictures:
...and its INCREDIBLY CLEAR WATER:
Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge:
From Milson's Point...
From Mrs Macquary's Park:
The Taronga Zoo:
Ferry ride over to the zoo:
Koala - he was walking right towards my camera:
Meerkats - by far the animal which captivity seems to have affected the least - they were so curious and seemed so happy:
Tiger - I felt really bad for the tigers. They were obviously not pleased to be there, although I think they had been raised in captivity:
Tiger hissing at zoo visitors:
There was this little section of the zoo that you had to enter two gates to get through, but once you were inside it was a small path through this little kangaroo and wallaby habitat. It was pretty amazing.
There was also this huge bird there which was not shy. Gina asked if it was threatening, and I responded with, "You see a bird that big walking towards you, you don't care what it's thinking. You get out of the way."
Even the wallaby got out of the way when it saw the bird coming - he hopped right in front of me on the path:
View of Sydney from the zoo:
I fell in love with this city. So clean and beautiful and not overcrowded. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love my job.
