Sunday, I got the chance to get out of town to visit a friend in Wollongong, about an hour south by train. The weather was beautiful, and the train rode the coast, offering views of the Pacific along the way. I managed to get a picture on the return, although the window was terribly disgusting.

|Oh the irony!|
On the way back, I was looking for a book store and happened on this arcade in the CBD (Central Business District). (Australians use the word arcade in this sense to describe an enclosed walkway between buildings or streets. It's not a game arcade, like in the U.S.). It was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and I finally felt kind of "in the holiday spirit".
