Pons Reunited, Part 4: A Short Sydney Interlude

We headed back to Sydney for a day to send Ky back to Canada, since unlike some people here, she has an actual important job.

The Powerhouse Museum

With our extra day in Sydney we decided to visit the Powerhouse Museum. It’s basically like the Telus World of Science (Space and Science Centre) back home, where there are lots of activities teaching young kids about science. There were all kinds of exhibits, with something for everyone, including old pharmacy stuff for Rita and old computers for Ed. He really dated himself by pointing to dusty computers (boxes that were barely computers) on display and talking about how he was going to buy them back in the day. Also when he described how exciting the moon landing was when he watched it live.

There were some must-see things, namely some steam powered equipment which was all kinda boring but actually moving so kinda cool at the same time. Chris also threw out his arm cranking a little handle to light up some lights in one display which was pretty funny.

Hahaha.

There was also a fashion exhibit celebrating magazine editor Isabella Blow. Chris and Jeff left after about 5 minutes, because they don’t understand Philip Treacy hats.

Crazy hat.

We also had shelled out to see the DC Lego exhibit. It was pretty cool, with lots of superhero statues, replica comic book covers, and a really big Batmobile. These sorts of exhibits always seem sort of dangerous to have around children… Hopefully they glue the LEGO together well. I’ve definitely seen disastrous YouTube videos that suggest otherwise.

Then, it was up to Brisbane!
