Morning Hill Ride

The 2nd day in Canberra. A bit of exercise from the early morning. Did a good ride plus 2 hill climbs of Red Hill (721m) and Black Mountain (812m) . Bike path along the Lake Burley Griggin is well maintain and the beautifully modified landscape of the city and cool temperature gives me perfect venue to cycle.

Afternoon Political Ride

After lunch, head toward the old and present parliament. I took a free tour at the old parliament which allow me to learn the history of the parliament building and formation of democracy in Australia. I am not particularly into these two areas but It was good to know anyway.

After the parliament tours, I had a look at the embassy area of Canberra . It was really interesting area as you can see many different type of building from all over the world in such a small area.

Left Canberra at 4.00p.m. arrived Sydney 7.30p.m.

Tomorrow is Blue Mountains. Hope the weather won't get worse.
