Twilight Parade – Chinese New Year

Standard

Last Sunday, it was the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations in Sydney. We didn´t have the opportunity to attend many of the celebrations, or even checkout the lights and sculptures that were around the city, but we certainly did not want to miss the Twilight Parade.

After our disappointment with the celebrations in Brisbane, and having watched Sydney celebrations on TV the previous years, we were excited to see it live.

We were not disappointed 🙂 It was fun, lively and it featured many aspects of the Chinese cultural in a Western country. Here are some pictures:

Aztecs Exhibition – Australian Museum

Standard

Before it left the building, on the 1st of February, we still had the opportunity to visit this brilliant exhibition. We got to learn about Aztec daily life, their gods and demons, the human sacrifices, their warrior nature and the Spanish conquest.

It was very interesting and they had some fantastic pieces on display.

The size was just right for me, giving one enough information and opportunity to explore whatever area one might wish but not so long that it would become boring or tiring.

What a perfect day to spend a Saturday morning in the city 🙂
