Today, I am told, is the first day of the second decade of the third millennium.
Last night, Sydney celebrated with the traditional anticipated/expected fireworks spectacular over the harbour - and I actually ventured in for the first time since December 31, 1985 (the year the movie "Explorers" premiered, because we filled in our afternoon by going to the cinema to see it.)
Ice cream van in Martin Place.
I had been invited by a friend to attend her rooftop gathering in The Rocks and this sounded like the perfect way to enjoy the event without having to tolerate the crowds!
The view upon arrival, above The Rocks.
Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Sydney Opera House (recently nicknamed the "Oprah House").
Fireworks by Foti Brothers, wavy glow stick by Karen, glowing rings by Chie-Hoon.
Happy New Year!
(By the way, the first photo is a closeup of the battery-operated pendant I wore for the event.)
