What a great trip we had! I am looking forward to posting about all the things we saw and learned. But before that, I have to say how it just breaks my heart to return to yet more tragic school massacres. How can we stop this? Once more with great sadness I have to put this up:

Well, here we are! In Sydney, Australia. We are renting a wonderful one-bedroom apartment, or flat as they call it here, in an area called Pott’s Point. We have a great view of the Opera house, the Harbor bridge, and the Central Business District, as their downtown is called.
