A Trip to the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia - 12th April 2000

Nosher's up in the Blue Mountains, out west of Sydney in New South Wales. Dave "Trotsky" comes along too, so it must have been the weekend or something. There's also plenty more randomness from Sydney itself, including a tour around the Sydney Opera House on Bennelong Point, a walk up the bridge (although not the one that goes all the way to the top, as there was a massive queue for that) and a trip into town by ferry from Parramatta.
