Sydney Opera House and Royal Botanic Gardens

It’s past midnight, but blogging is more fun than sleeping.

Tonight, a few people and I took the subway downtown for a harbour cruise for international students (which I will blog about later, in an effort to keep you in suspense).  We intentionally got there early so we’d have time to explore a little.  We took pictures of the Sydney Opera House with all the other tourists and walked around the Royal Botanic Gardens.  I’m sure I will be visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens several more times.  Why?  Here’s why:

Free range and free of charge. Gives the Missouri Botanical Garden a run for its money.

And here’s some more motivation for me to visit this lovely spot again in the future.  We only covered about half of the park.  If that.

A tree.

Some more trees.

One of several iconic Syndey views.

The birds are quite friendly.

The Botanic Gardens are adjacent to the Sydney Opera House, so we walked around it.  I hope to go to a performance there sometime this semester.

Lots of steps.

This is what the sails look like up close.
