Some good news today- I feel slightly less sick than I did, and hopefully the flu is on its way out the door, and earlier in the day I got to go to the beach! It was a local beach, not far from the hotel, and some of the others got to do what’s called paddle-boarding while I just swam on my own. The water was quite a bit colder than I thought it would be, but once you get used to it, you’ll be fine. 

I also got the chance to do grocery shopping for the first time- I went to a local supermarket and was able to pick some good things out. Surprisingly, the selection wasn’t that much different from what I’m used to in America, the only difference is that most items that I’m used to back home were replaced with non-chainstore items. After that, I fell asleep for several hours in the hope of sleeping the flu away, and I’m free all of tomorrow so I’m hoping to get the chance to see Sydney’s Chinatown if I feel up to it.
