All exceeded my expectations.
Oh stop rolling your eyes, it’s harmless admiration! Believe me, it took a long time to discover these things this morning.
There was an endless, sticky line through customs (I got my passport stamped!) at 7 AM Sydney time, then another few hours of trains and moving into my Airbnb house. Before I knew it, I was in the city.
For those who don’t know, I love cities. I love feeling the bustle and observing the people (though it didn’t seem like it yesterday), and generally being swept into the life of a place.
It was misty, so I spent most of the day in museums. It cleared a little later, and I spent the day wandering, which I love!
