We went to the Sydney Contemporary art exhibit at Carriageworks today! It was pretty cool, there were SO MANY paintings! Some of it was pure art wank ("Here's a painting that's indistinguishable from what a five year-old could do!") but not much. Naturally I took some photos of my favourites! flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

We went for a wander up Martin Place at lunch to take some photos! Decided to get my black-and-white on this time. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

We went for our anniversary dinner tonight, then a wander through the city to walk it off afterwards. I brought the camera along and took some photos! flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

We used the brand-new Sydney Metro to get there and back (well, part of the way since they terminate at Chatswood), the trains are automated and driverless so you can stand at the very front of the train and look directly out the front window to watch yourself zooming through the tunnels! It honestly felt like we were in a city other than Sydney, because until now we've only had the massive double-decker trains.

We went to see Underworld play at the Sydney Opera House last night, and it seriously ruled. I only have three of their albums but recognised about half of the songs, and the light show was incredible!

And the final day that I still have photos for, day 10. 😕 We went to Bellinzona and Lugano which is in the south of Switzerland but right near the border with Italy, and it's crazy how much it feels like _actually_ being in Italy. All the architecture feels Mediterranean and all the signs are in Italian, but we didn't actually leave Switzerland. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

Day 7! Not many photos in this one, we just visited the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucerne (which granted was pretty sweet). flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

Day 6 was the medieval town of Gruyères. There's a big awesome old castle at the very peak, and it's also home to the HR Geiger museum, and the bar next to it. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

Day five, we saw mountains! Not the really crazy-high ones since they were totally obscured by cloud, but I got to see snow in the flesh and the mountains that we _could_ see were pretty epic. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

Fourth day of photos, we visited Murten, an old walled town that's been around in some form or another since the 6th century according to Wikipedia! Then back to Bern to see some parts we hadn't seen yet. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/

Third day of photos! We went to Basel and visited Augusta Raurica, a Roman city from around 44 BC. 😮 Then just wandered around the rest of Basel. flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/
