Wandering To Sydney's Circular Quay

It's another beautiful day to wander around one of the most beautiful cities in the world and we stroll the couple of miles from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay.

Eventually the Sydney Harbour Bridge, nicknamed The Coat Hanger by the irreverent Aussies, comes into view.

Apparently the taxpayers are going to beautify this area over the next few years, but it's already a great place to walk.

We never fail to be impressed by the Sydney Opera House, even though it's a prime example of an inadequately planned government project that went horrendously over-budget and took years - decades? - longer to complete than predicted. When the design was chosen, nobody, including the architect, knew how to build it. We can only hope the marvelous results don't encourage other bureaucrats.
