Happy Australia Day and Chinese New Year
It has been really hot last week, reaching the hottest evening low temperature (25°C or 77°F) for 12 years in two consequent nights. I could only image Don living in beautiful Boston with beautiful snow is sooooo lucky, doesn't need to suffer the heat with annoying insects and sweaty body. (to Don: Antony is poor, he does not have an air conditioner.) Anyhow, not as well known as July the Fourth worldwide, but today is Australia Day.
If you are in Sydney, the celebration starts at Hyde Park from 10am, here's a short list:
Also on the water (Sydney Harbour):
And the celebration finishes at around 9pm with fireworks at Darling Harbour, Enmore, Kogarah Bay, Miranda, Cronulla, Parramatta (at 11pm), Rooty Hill, Castle Hill and Penrith.
For more detail about the celebration in Sydney and around Australia, please refer to this page.
The weather is looking good for Sydney today. Forecast says a chance of light shower in the morning and then in the evening, the rest of the day is fine. Around 27°C in the City.
Incidentally, tomorrow is also the Chinese New Year. The year of Ox starts. For details on Chinese New Year celebrations, please refer to this page.
The photo above is a photogenic (Pura) cow, I took this photo in Tasmania during the trip. (on behalf of Remote Village, we say thank you to Pura cows.)
Also, congratulations to Prof Mick Dodson, the Australian of the Year. Indigenous leader Mick Dodson is the father of the reconciliation. He has spent a lifetime campaigning for indigenous rights. On 13th February last year, the nation paused as the Government announced the formal apology.
