Dan has been nothing short of phenomenal when it comes to getting logistics organized, and Seumas and Russel have been ace as well; due to some Aussie lameness with car registration, we haven't been able to get it done just yet, but R is organizing documents that should get the process going again. Thanks!
Tomorrow we're set to get up and out of the city early - 6 am early - and up into the Blue Mountains, where yours truly is set to take a 4WD training course. Afterwards, I believe we'll be spending the next few days up there, hopefully with hiking and caves on the agenda. I'm frankly itching to get out of Sydney, especially because we'll be spending so much time here in the coming weeks - Dan got Margaret Cho tickets for next Saturday, which is great, but I don't know, I just don't see myself as one of those folks who's going to fall in love with the place. Dave Cobb once said that the defining moment of a Paris visit is when you ascend the Eiffel Tower and either love or hate the place; not sure what I'm supposed to do here to see whether or not I love Sydney, but so far my overwhelming sensation is that of very mild disappointment.
I'm going to try to sleep some more now - haven't slept too well in weeks now, and I'm starting to wish I could just sleep for 48 hours to catch up with everything!
