Day 13-17 - April 30-May 4

Statistically, the average 4 day period in May should experience 23.6 hours of sunshine. Outliers are a bitch.

I experienced 1 hour. The four days of my first visit to Australia are best characterized as wet. British Columbian rainforest wet.

According to TripAdvisor this was indeed unfortunate as 23 of the top 25 activities in Sydney are best experienced outdoors, in less than inclement weather.

Regardless I count my sojourn a success for the following reasons:

1) I was not successfully attacked by any poisonous animals (2 spiders and 2 large unidentified insects were casualties of short battles)

2) I watched my first Australian Football League match ('Aussie-Rules football)

3) I was able to reconnect with friends and classmates I hadn't seen in as long as 15 years - from SMUS to UBC, and even from Toronto

I've been told I must revisit for longer, see more of Australia, and see the lovely beaches and patios in all their glory. I will be buying inclement weather insurance contracts.
