The sun is out, the days are warm, and the time has come to shed the shackles of winter. Sydney turned out in droves – droves I say! – for the Festival of the Winds at Bondi Beach on Sunday. We traveled to Bondi Junction by bus and train. At the train station, the line for the bus on to the beach was an hour or more wait, so we gave up and took a taxi. With all the traffic, it still took over 30 minutes to drive 4 kilometers.
It was worth it though, because the primary reason for our excursion, aside from serious cabin fever, was to meet our new friends from the U.S., Tami, Jeff, Lexy, and Austin. They arrived in Sydney just a few days ago, to make Australia their home.
