My Sydney, my 2nd country. I am proud, so proud. Listening to Elsa read yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald articles about the Opera House and the Coathanger, Bondi Beach, The Rocks, George Street - we were both in tears, and she has never even been there.
Reading one captioned picture brought and brings tears to my eyes - "from Coogee to Bondi" described part of the torch relay. Dear Coogee.
