On Vacation

Well, after signing my job offer, I bought my ticket to Oz and took off.  I had almost zero jet lag, which was great, but I imagine that I will have jet lag when I get back unfortunately.

Things here have been great.  I’m staying with a friend I met in Germany – Chris – and his family.  They live in a small suburb south of Sydney proper in a pretty nice house.  I have also caught up with a Columbian friend from high school – who works for the Sydney Hilton – and one of my floormates from Germany – Kylie.

One thing that has really surprised me is how cold it is here.  It’s not bad during the day, but the temperature during the winter gets much colder than I had expected it to be.  As well, I have been really surprised by how similar Sydney is to the US.  Since it’s so far away, I was expecting it to be more like Europe or Asia, but really, it’s a lot like Canada.  The largest differences are in the flora and the cars.

Well, I’m gonna take off for a run.  When I get back, I’ll post pictures from the trip.

    Ahhh, Sydney! True, a big city is a big city for the most part. Definitely check out the Gold Coast (QLD) for a change of pace!!
