Villa Marti: Part 3

[Note: Corrections and additions made in bold, about eight hours after the original post– I had to check my work log and spend forever uploading pictures.]

It’s been a whole week since my last post, and we’ve been busy as all out! I’ll have a massive photo drop here soon, as soon as the 6 dozen or so photos upload, but I’ll do a quick rundown of the things I’ve been up to, and go a bit more in-depth about the things I wasn’t able to get photos of. (I probably won’t get to the accommodations post until just before I leave, but I’ll get there!)

Let’s see, last you heard, we’d hung the roof frame on the shade house, so that was last Monday. I’ll do a quick rundown of what we’ve accomplished on each day since, and I’ll follow up in the next post with photos where I note they’ll be attached. [Pictures have been added to this post, instead! NOTE: IT IS VERY PICTURE-HEAVY BELOW THE FOLD.]

A Series of Photos with Little Commentary

I’ve spent the past couple of days wandering around Sydney, getting a couple good rambles in the suburbs to the north and west. I’ve had some delicious food, but the thing I’ve noticed most is that the residential architecture around here reminds me mostly, of all things, of New Orleans. So here’s a series of photos of the things I’ve seen over the past few days– starting with an afternoon wandering through the Royal Botanical Gardens, and an unphotographed lunch at the Sydney Opera House’s outdoor Charcuterie Bar.
