Another exhausting day.  Had breakfast at the 24 hour cafe at Circular Quay, watching the ferries come and go with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge as backdrop.  Walked to the Royal Botanic Gardens - loved the glass pyramid in the middle.  Walked past the state library, and dropped into the Legislature hall where they had Chinese calligraphy scrolls to celebrate the upcoming Olympics. I really liked “The Ultimate Aim” with the paint splash looking like an arrow shot.  Stopped for a super healthy and tasty lunch at some mall that was enroute to my destination goal of Queen Victoria Building/Shopping Center.  Stopped in St. Andrew’s Cathedral to take some shelter from the rain and to rest my aching back.  Gorgeous stained glass windows and comforting (live) organ music.  Walked through City Centre Station to avoid the rain but couldn’t figure out a train/metro to Darling Harbour, where the IMAX theatre is.  Finally ran thru the rain to the theatre and sat in line for an hour to watch The Dark Knight on a truly huge screen with terrifyingly loud sound.  Not sure I really understood the whole movie.  Went to dinner back at the Rocks and stumbled “home” to work.
