    Sydney, Australia. Day 2.

    March 8, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 68 °F

    After visiting ship's doctor in the morning and making sure Boris is ok to leave by himself, I decided to go to explore the city by myself.
    I took 9:00 AM shuttle to Darling Harbour and walked along the harbour to Barangaroo reserve.
    This area was of importance to Aboriginal Cadigal people as a hunting and fishing region. There are some indications that it was inhibiting over 6000 years. Now it is a beautiful park with terraces and beautiful view of the harbour.
    After that I walked to the Rock. It is old pedestrian shopping area with Street market and many restaurants.
    I was debating with myself to walk Sydney bridge as a pedestrian or to go over the bridge. I took an elevator to the bridge and then walked to the other side of the bridge, taking pictures of the Sydney harbor and Opera house. It is carries rail, vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central district and North shore. It is a massive and about 0.5 km long. I had to cross it twice, to the North shore and then back to the center.
    After that I decided to visit Queen Victoria Building. The Queen Victoria Building (abbreviated as the QVB) is massive Victorian style building used as upscale marketplace (shops and restaurants). Beautiful exterior and interior.
    By that time I was already pretty tired and hungry and I still needed to get to the ship shuttle. Time to go back. Total steps walked today - 20,000.
    I was back on the ship by 2:30 PM.
    Next two days are sea days, so I hope Boris will have time to recover. His leg is still swollen and gets worse by the end of the day.. To see more pictures of this day, please use this link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/VCgKMWyXYBWpDRfB7

    Monday I went with mohamad to his shop and helpt him with some stuff. In the afternoon I went to a Boardgameshop and played carcassonne. That's a pretty cool game! Unfortunately I won the game.. In the evening I connected my laptop to his TV and watched deadpool. That's ofcourse way of life to watch movies! Haha.

    Tuesday I went together with mohamad to his shop with my own car and I replaced my oil filter and oil. So another thing finished @ my car. Now only finish the floor and maybe fix the air-conditioning. Probably the Compressor has to be replaced. In the afternoon I went to a dutch shop to get some licorice and other Dutch stuff. Afterwards I went to the post office to get my new Board game. Hopefully I can find some victims to play. I went back to the shop and waited for mohamad to finish and go home. After dinner I finished my floor in the car and I fixed my speaker. There was a cable loose and that was ofcourse in the most difficult part to reach! So I almost took my whole car apart, got the cables connected and put everything together. I'm so glad it's working now!.

    Wensday I build in a new radio and new speakers in the ute of mohamad. Afterwards I tried to recover some corrupted pictures from a phone, but unfortunately I couldn't fix them. In the evening I had mohamad's favorite food (picture). And watched a movie together with pepernoten! Yum yum.
