Alas, we arrived and Peter and I got the train from the airport to our hotel in The Rocks neighborhood of Sydney. My family had already arrived and was waiting for us in the lobby. Since my mom and grandparents hadn't seen summer weather in months, we immediately set out for some breakfast and a walk around the harbour.
My mom, loving the sun!

While wandering around the harbour, we stumbled upon a Chinese flash mob type gathering that was being heavily filmed by TV cameras. There were directors, sound people, etc. It seemed like a pretty big production, but we never figured out what it was. I'm fairly confident that I'll appear in the background of some Chinese music video in the near future.

Trying kangaroo burgers! My grandma noted that they taste somewhat like bison burgers, which is the most accurate comparison I've heard thus far.
We pretty much went straight to bed after dinner. I will post about the rest of our weekend tomorrow- we had an early flight again this morning so I'm off to bed!
