Note to anyone who's travelling to Sydney for the Games: if you try http://www.wotif.com.au you might find a better deal than what you already have booked. If that fails, you can call the Quest on Dixon and try for the weekly rate of $900. It's a nice place, just opened, and they have rooms available. I'm switching back to the Waldorf at $1250 a week because it's a much bigger room with parking.
Can't wait to sell the car next week.
Thinking of leaving the country briefly next weekend. Might be easier than getting my visa renewed.
