World Famous Sydney

Everyone recognizes the world famous Sydney opera house. I consider myself a lucky duck to have taken a harbor ride right next to the darned thing. The only thing that could be cooler than seeing a world famous landmark is to see a world famous landmark in the arms of someone you love. (sigh…)

I was really fortunate to be able to dine with several friends from Quest – James Delve, Prasant Moorthy, and Vanessa Barcellona. We road a JetCat from the pier right next to the Opera House out to Manly, a very posh suburb of Sydney. There, we ate at a very good restaurant called “Ribs & Rumps” where I was tasted “roo” for the first time. (And NO, despite what the name might make you think, Ribs & Rumps was NOT a strip club!) The kangaroo was cooked medium and was heavily covered in sauce, which was a good thing considering how dry the meat was. It’s an incredibly lean meat with a bit of chew and a somewhat stringier texture than beef. It reminded me most of venison.
Someday, I’ll be able to explore the city at a leisurely pace and enjoy all that Australia’s first city has to offer.


  1. I made a model of the Opera House in 10th grade. I wish I was there or you were here…:(

  2. Let’s be honest now – you wish you were here in Oz! ;^)

    My verification word was WIDWTFD, which translates as “What’d I do? What the f—, dude?” (grin)
