Just got back from three days in Sydney hanging out with my postdoc, T, before his trip back to Europe. I had a fantastic time. We ended up staying at a really nice hotel near Oxford Street and did so much walking that I'm now sporting a whopper of a blister on the ball of my right foot (but it was totally worth it). Highlights include...
1. sipping soy chai lattes in the upstairs cafe in the Berkelouw bookshop on Oxford Street;
2. watching an ibis terrorize a foreign tourist at Darling Harbour;
3. catching the ferry to Double Bay;
4. eating freshly shucked oysters at the Sydney fish markets;
