Working in Sydney: updates from “Down Under”

It’s been about a week since I arrived in Sydney and it’s passed really quickly. I headed to Sydney on Sunday, July 6, via London, and will stay here for two weeks to work on an ISO 27001 security project that will extend to beginning of 2009. The offices I’m working at, in Darling Park, are really nice, and the views over Darling Harbour simply awesome, as you can see below.

Now that my body is starting to recuperate from the 8 hours time difference, I’ve decided to upload a few pictures to the Photos area. There aren’t that many at the moment, but I’ll keep uploading more as I go.

Before arriving, a friend told me that Sydney was his second favourite city in the world (after Boston) and I can understand why he thinks so. Sydney seems to be a young, modern and vibrant city that has an interesting mix from Europe, Asia and America. Also people seem to be quite open and friendly.

Still have a week left in the land ‘Down Under’ so hopefully will have time over the weekend to do the tourist again and take some more pics to show you.
