I've been a little slack posting about my trip to LCA2007 in Sydney. So anyway.

Saturday and Sunday

I caught an early flight ( 05:45 ) from Auckland so I only got about an hours sleep on Friday night. For some reason the plane sat on the ground in Auckland for a good 45 minutes but we ended up on time. I sat next to a woman who was going over to Perth to meeting a guy she had been in a LDR with (for 3 months) for the first time, hope that went well, she seemed nice.

Landed in Sydney and caught a Taxi ( by myself, I saw a couple of guys in Gnome shirts at the taxi stand but didn't feel up to asking them to share) to Shalom College where I wa staying. Got my room okay but there was only one other guy from LCA there. I headed on the bus into the city ( ended up seeing Julien Goodwin on the bus and chatting a little to him ) to see Ed , Brent and Brent's family for lunch etc. Nice few hours wandering around Sydney, eating Pizza and chatting. I got back to Shalom around about 5pm and I was so tired I just went to sleep.

On Sunday I got up, had some nice Kosher breakfast and wandered up with a couple of people to look around the venue. There was a cricket match going on the the Oval just outside my window, all very nice. We wandered up to the venue but it was empty and nobody was around.

Around 1pm I caught a bus into town and then the Manly Ferry to go see my brother at his work. After that I looked around Manly I caught the Ferry back into town for the Sunday LCA dinner at the Lowenbrau Keller in The Rocks. Good fun and nice food. Everyone then caught a bus back home and chatted for a bit before bed.

More later. My Photo gallery should show up here .
