It's been a super but very mixed week so far. I've been having problems trying to get a post sorted with photos despite all the theory being right. Trying to do a simple task like get the photos in the right order now that I've got an app which will downsize them is taking too much time. I've been doing the real tourist things is Sydney which is really good when one has a Sydneyite to show you round.
Today we came to the Blue Mountains and went on a 3 hour fairly easy tramp. Given the fact that I need a new knee I was delighted to complete it with very little pain or inconvenience. For that I was very thankful.
We managed to get a tourist bus back from where we were to the town we are staying in after the tramp. Unfortunately my innate feeling that busses are inherently a form of transport to be avoided was justified by the fact that I didn't sit down quickly enough and was catapulted ribs first onto a seat rail with unfortunate consequences for my ribs. At best I've cracked one or two. The good news is that there's nothing to be done about it. The bad news is that it's very very painful.
So tonight I'm very thankful for the fact that I didn't break an ankle or a leg today.
As for a blog post with all the pictures I'm sure that at the very worst I'll get a post done when I get back to New Zealand.
