Madame Butterfly and The Rocks District

Last night, we went to see Madame Butterfly at the Sydney Opera House. Aside from Puccini's ignorance with regards to actual Japanese culture (which is appropriate to the times in which the Opera was written), it was really amazing! The set design was positively beautiful and the music and voices were wonderful.








Today, we went to find Dallas a suit case to carry the extra things she has acquired on the trip:


Then, we walked around the Rocks District (where our hotel is located). There was some kind of an outdoor market going on, which had a lot of really cool artsy stuff... and we had to make a few extra purchases, including chocolate-covered strawberries. Actually, our first strawberries were so yummy that we had to go back for more! We also walked about a third of the way out onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and visited Cadman's Cottage, the oldest building in Sydney.








Now we are sitting in Starbucks, again, killing time until we leave for the airport at 6pm (our flight to Oahu departs at 9:20pm).
