Take a Walk With Me

There is a beautiful walk from the Sydney Opera House to the Art Museum. We joined some Chinese Branch members and enjoyed the walk on a Saturday morning.

Early spring blossoms.

Now we are walking through the garden toward the city. The spires are a cathedral, I think St Mary's.

Not very many 3 story buildings left.

The Kwoks at the Korean restaurant. There was a hot plate at every table for Chinese medicine: soup with herbs, vegetables and bones (for marrow).
