Spending a week in Sydney visiting friends and relatives.

I am here in Sydney for only one week to visit a very special friend who moved back here a year ago and I miss her dearly. Eliane and her husband Leo, here I am finally! Also I’ll have the chance to meet up with my gorgeous Italian nephew, Michele, and his girlfriend Pearl, who I will be meeting for the first time. Who else is here in Sydney that would like to go for a coffee with me? Just call my mobile or send and email, and I will come and see you too. I would love to meet you all!

I experimented with Sydney transportation and loved the double decker trains plus the politeness of the locals or other tourists like me.
My hosts are fantastic and tomorrow I am going for dinner with Michele and Pearl. I browsed around Castle Hill Shopping Centre which is as big as the one in Joondalup.

The houses here are very different, and driving around I couldn’t see any Suburbs similar to the ones in Perth.
I feel like I am in another country altogether. My only recollection of Sydney from a previous visit is the Darling Harbour.
I never visited any other locations. Now is my chance!

I am very impressed with the efficiency, cleanliness and architectural aspects of this busy city!

Visiting family in Brazil. Exciting, except the politics.

I am away for a long holidays visiting my family in Brazil.
Experiencing the bosom of my family that I haven’t seen for 3 years.
Pictures worth a thousand words.
So here they are:

Painting Classes. Never too late to learn

Susanna is an artist. She paints and she also teaches painting.
She has a fantastic nature and is easy to learn with her.
If you want to pursue a hobby this is so easy.
