You lookin at me? Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to. There’s the Harbour with the Bridge and Opera House, the clean beaches, green parks, and the Royal Botanical Gardens, just to name a few. And they’re all within walking distance or a short bus or train ride from each other. And about the botanical gardens – what really amazed me(and creeped me out) was the vast number of large, fruit bats making one corner of the garden their home. Even in the daytime, they were very loud and occasionally took flight when they weren’t hanging upside down among the trees. I even snapped one making eye contact with me. Ugly but fascinating creatures.
