Africa Pic Tour with “American Dave’s” pics – State Library NSW, Sydney, Australia

On the 19th:

Continued looking at job options, apartments, and possibly enrolling in an Oz business school. Got a little rowdy. After killing 2 cases of brew with some friends we had a water chugging contest before hitting up McDonald’s at 3 in the morning.

On the 20th:

Got a bank account at Westpac. Australian banking is interesting because all of the bank accounts that I looked at had monthly charges. This differs from all of the bank accounts I’ve had in the US. However, Australian interest rates are substantially higher than US interest rates. The simple savings account yields a 7% interest rate. I also got scooped a new webcam from an Australian electronics store called Dick Smiths. Got confused and thought it was the pro. This means I might be making another trip to Dick Smiths tomorrow.

On the 21st:

Switched to Wake Up Hostel. Wake Up is like a college dorm and a hotel combined. The hostel is huge and there are a lot more scheduled outings and events. For example, many days have free group tours of Sydney. Will probably do one of these tomorrow.

The real deal:

I just finished uploading the pics that tour mate Dave gave me before he left. Because I just put the pics up I thought I would post a couple of the good ones.
