The long wait for the New Year

More than 12 hours waiting for the midnight, most of them laying under the strong Australian sun.
We found a great location: at the opera house, right in front of the harbour bridge. Thanks to a nice young couple from Hong Kong we also got a place in first row. The show was terrific: the 12 minutes of fireworks left everybody openmouthed, and very happy.
