    We recently made our trip to Darling Harbour.  I’m sure you guys want to hear about the cultural differences between Australia and the U.S.  Off the top of my head, loitering isn’t really a punishable offense, cops are nowhere near as present as they are in LA or SF, and girls walk around the streets without shoes on Britney-Spears-style.  With that in mind, Darling Harbour is like a much better City Walk.  Good restaurants, street performers, shops and sights to see.

    We happened to be there on a day they had fireworks.  I have never been this close to professional fireworks.  American culture would never allow that.  Too much fear built into the system.

    Another thing that is different between the two countries: action happening beneath freeway overpasses. This is an adept street performer entertaining under a freeway.  He had a captivating way with words.

    “I’ve been street performing for 13 years.  I’ve worked all my life to offer you something I value.  All I ask in return is to give something that you value.  I do what I do because it is an honest way.  You get paid what you’re worth by the people who watch you.  There’s nothing in this world quite like it.”

    Users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 can check for the new firmware through Samsung Kies and as an over-the-air (OTA) update. However, those who are yet to receive an OTA update or Samsung Kies, can update their handsets to the new firmware manually.
