This past week was great; it was very busy and exciting. Within my internship I continued to work on my assignment from the previous weeks, which included researching the history of a nearby town called Lane Cove, and writing narratives for the station to use as commercials. On Wednesday we got the day off work to celebrate Australia Day! As an American, I didn’t know what to expect or what to do, so my roommates and I did a little bit of everything. We started the day off right with drinks and going to a few different parks and festivals then headed to the rocks for the rest of the day where we met and hung out with many Australian people. I loved Australia day, even though I missed fireworks because I had to register for classes. On Thursday I went and saw the theatrical performance called “Soap” at the Opera House with a big group of girls. The performance was amazing and was well worth the money to say the least. Afterwards we all went out to a bar called Argyle in the Rocks that was beautiful and later met up with a few friends at the nightclub Home. I really enjoyed being in the Rocks and Darling Harbor; it is very beautiful at night. On Friday I went and checked out Patty’s Market that was overwhelming at first, as I didn’t know what to expect. I ended up getting many good deals on souvenirs for family and friends though. Later Friday night a group of us departed for surf camp that was about 6 hours up the coast. We arrived at camp late Friday night, checked out the beach, and went to sleep. I was not a fan of the bugs. Early the next morning we learned to surf! I did surprisingly well, and caught many waves. We had two, two-hour sessions on Saturday followed by a great dinner and partying on the beach. Such a day in paradise, the beach and surf instructors were beautiful. Sunday morning we woke up, tried from Saturday but surfed all morning, relaxed, and came home. This past week was a lot of fun and though this week might not be as action packed, I am excited to relax.
