Inspired by KommieCat. Enjoy!

Before I take you to the city, lets have a look at what is in the other direction!

Masterchef Kitchen, some 50m from my apartment, where Masterchef Australia is filmed:



The front of one of our showrooms at work (all shut up for Boxing Day):



The laneway at my work (all shut up for Boxing Day):



Back onto Botany Rd! This road leads basically from Botany Bay all the way through the city and into The Rocks. Let's begin the journey!

My favourite drinking hole. Why? Lingerie waitresses! BOOYAH!
Rosebery Hotel:



A typical site - an Indian dressed as Santa trying to promote Christmas Warehouses:



Where the City slums are, mostly filled with aboriginals.
Redfern:

Through Redern and down past Central Train/Bus Terminals:



Three Wise Monkeys - another fine establishment:



The Queen Victoria Building:



The Apple Store - for all you iPhone haters:



Down the end of George St and into The Rocks. Here is The Orient Hotel (with The Lowenbrau and The Argyle behind it):



Down through the Rocks and under the Harbour Bridge:



With the Opera House behind you:

That was incredibly awesome. Thanks.

The gravity comment was funny, but what would really be funny, is if you could get all the american guys over there, and then with no warm up or practice, get a video of them trying to parallel park.

BTW, is Airbourne popular there, or is it just something being sold to us here, by claiming it's popular there?

No idea what Airbourne is!

Just did a quick Google search and it is either an ultralight aircraft or a rock band from Bumfuck, Victoria. Either way, neither of them are big down here!
