Day 2 (reliving yesterday) Wed 7th Nov
I spent today having lots of stressful moments as I was the passenger in a hire car. Being on the other side of the road is rather nerve wracking. It feels like you go the wrong way around round abouts, then turn left across traffic and turn right sharply into the street you are going in to. I kept going to the wrong side of the car to get in and finally by the end of the day started to feel ok with the road rules over here.
While we where out driving I saw a yellow school bus. They are real, just like in the movies. I also saw a black and white police car just like you see in the movies. So now I know they are real and not a figment of the movie directors mind.
I am staying at a place called Huntington Beach. The beach is very, very long - longer than 7 Mile Beach at Lennox Head. Every morning the beach is cleaned - what a job that would be.
The houses here are very cute. The architecture is well thought out and the whole place is really clean.
While out and about today I went to a Wal-Mart store. They are like a K-Mart except this one had a McDonalds inside it and they also have some fresh food eg fruit and vegetables. While I was there I found big Hershey bars of chocolate for under $2. I was amazed and just had to buy some.
I hope you are enjoying the photos and little anecdotes about my travels.
