In January 2004 we visited Sydney, Australia. Sydney is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Our visit co-incided with several summer festivals and activities, including a night light show from the Harbour Bridge synchronized to music near the famous Opera House. For most of us, Sydney is a long ways from home, but well worth the journey. Beyond Sydney's beauty, unmatched Aussie friendliness makes the visit that much more enjoyable.
