A Double-Decker Intercity train gets us into Sydney in 90m. Day 39 Thursday 30th June 2011. We’re astonished in the train when a guy walks up to a bench seat and just drags the seat-back over to the other side of the seat bottom. The forward facing bench seat now faces backwards, forming a bay for four people with the seat that was behind it, just a moment earlier. Whatever next!
In the usual way, Steve and Mary walk the streets for hours, relishing some Japanese food on their hurried way from Central Station down to enjoy the views around Sydney Opera House. The harbour’s a really cool place for a chat and a chillout and a cold drink. We’re weary but happy on the late train home that night.
