From Sydney.

Greetings from Sydney, Australia!  I'm sitting in the Borland/CodeGear office in downtown Sydney.  It is just about a 5 minute walk down to Circular Quay where you can get a great view of the world-famous Sydney Opera house and the Harbor Bridge.  Other than that, downtown Sydney feels like any other modern city.  Of course there is the whole driving on the other side of the road thing that you have to used to.  Especially at the crosswalks.  I rode in the front seat the limo from the airport to the hotel and it was just so odd to not have a steering wheel in front of me for being on that side of the car.  Of course all you folks that think we Americans drive on the wrong side of the road, probably feel the same way when you come to the States.  So now I know the feeling :-).


  1. 166 countries drive on the right side.

    74 on the left.

    Out of those 74, 40+ are minor islands with almost no roads to drive (too small). :)

  2. Not sure what your schedule is like there Allen, but if you get the chance you should take the ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. A very cheap way to get a very beautiful harbour cruise.

    It also doesn't hurt that you'll be able to have a jug of beer in the garden bar of the Watsons Bay Hotel, which looks straight down the harbour towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge. And then top it all off with some delicious fish and chips from Doyles.
