Old Buildings. New Buildings.

Off Macquarie Street, there is an art exhibit on a hill with parts of old buildings that have been knocked down over the years. There are some beautiful pieces there.

Queen Victoria has a big butt

We went out to see another enormously oversized Cunard liner docked in Circular Quay - the Queen Victoria. It's been a year since we saw her two big sisters. Time sure flies between large boat sightings.

Giles + that city

Girl Geek Dinner 0 Delivered!

It's amazing what you can pull together in three weeks with a couple of powerhouse sponsors, the help of a fantastic functions manager at a restaurant and a colour inkjet printer.

The first Girl Geek Dinner in Sydney was a success!!

Skin good enough to eat

The apricot lady is slowly fermenting in Circular Quay. She looks pretty awesome and is enormously big.

So Aus-tray-arn

Last year I spent Australia Day recovering from dehydration and drunkenness caused by the massively fun Big Day Out 2007. Because of that, I had no idea that Invasion Day was such a big deal in this city. They go all out with ferry races, events in every park in the city - Hyde Park, The Domain and anywhere else with grass.

G + I spent the day exploring what people are calling Australian food these days. After trying salt and peppered corn on the cob, passing on chocolate coated strawberries and avoiding Turkish crepes kebabs at that time of the morning, we settled on the classic mostly warm meat pie and a skinny latte each.

We ate sitting on the grass listening to a cheaper version of the Wiggles on stage in the park, while a plane wrote SORRY across the sky. If there was any day to apologise, that was it.
