So, the wireless Internet access at Starbucks would have been like $14 an hour. WTF???? Yeah, that so did not happen. There's a place next door to the hostel with one dollar per hour but so far we've been too damn lazy to drag our butts over there.

I can't even remember what we did yesterday. I remember doing laundry and going out to dinner to an amazing Thai restaurant. OMG. The best food ever. I have to stop eating out but I've never been a fan of cooking in hostel kitchens and one can only take in a certain amount of Subway etc...oh yeah and we walked like 10k again (or it felt like it) and fell asleep afterwards. Sleeping during the day was not the brightest idea.

Today we walked over the Harbour Bridge and made plans. Ida's going to Alice Springs on the 4th of March and we're both pretty much done with Sydney by now - it's nice and all but rather expensive and it's kind of time to move on. So I'll be going to Tamworth to do my farm/jillaroo course on the 2nd and maybe that would get me a farm job *crosses fingers*. But if they make me slaughter a sheep or watch one being slaughtered I'm just going to keel over and die. I wonder if I can manage to stay on a horse after not riding in like ten years.

However, we are not moving on from here until we've seen the beaches, so tomorrow, weather allowing, we might head to the legendary Bondi Beach. Which apparently is all hype and total crap in reality but heck, can't leave Sydney without seeing it. Then again the weather forecast goes as follows: Thursday: Fine. Partly cloudy. Light to moderate southwest to southeast winds. Dangerous surf conditions developing during the day. Meep...well, it's not like we'll be surfing. Swimming would be nice...

We're also planning a day trip to the Blue Mountains and another to Canberra next week. So yeah, until jobs happen, we'll be living VERY cheaply when it comes to food and entertainment.

Yeah, I think the school has a lot of farmer etc. contacts in NSW and they help "students" find jobs, so I'll see what they say and what kind of work it would be. I'd just really like to see the life of a real Australian farm:)

Ah, I see...I was sure mulesing was some new fancy butchering method...
That fly thing does sound really bad *shudder*.

You're doing a day trip to Canberra?

Isn't it like...a five hour drive? Each way?

It's really not worth it :-P Canberra is boring.

I second that. Canberra wasn't really brimming with cool stuff to do.

Yeah, they do day trips out of Sydney:) Weird, huh?
My friend wants to go there. I'm still a little undecided.

I could never use Internet for more than about an hour when I went to Sydney. It was just too freakin expensive.

GO TO THE BLUE MOUNTAINS!! It's gorgeous!!

So glad to see that you're having a good time :)

Aww, I hope you're feeling better now!
Blue Mountains, definitely. It will be so good to get out of the city.

$14 an hour. WTF????

WHAT?! For real? That's like almost stealing. lol!

Sounds like a busy time coming up. Yeah, no slaughter. I was put off chicken after my Dad took me to the place that... 'prepares' the chickn for cooking. *shudders, and sad* I can't even cut fish into pieces to cook. No head. Anyway...

Yeah, 14. And then there's a place next door with one dollar per hour. Guess which one we'll be going to...:)
