Sydney Opera House Australia, 1997

One of my favorite buildings in the world, in one of my favorite cities in the world, in one of my favorite countries in the world.

Does it get any better than that?

A truly magnificent piece of architecture and, for all it's operational problems, one of the truly iconic structures ever created.

Having a charm all of its own, I tend to think of Sydney in communion with its "Sister Cities" of San Francisco, Cape Town & Vancouver.

All beautifully situated on a harbor with spectacular views, a bohemian atmosphere and a live and let live attitude.

Sydney's beaches (several of them officially nude), its waterfront, nightlife and character make it a very special place for me.

Also see Australia.
