Counting down NYE 2011 in Sydney-The longest 16.5 hours in my life

This is probably one of the most ridiculous thing I've ever done in my life
For the sake of New Year's Eve fireworks in one of the most iconic place in the world, I spent more than a half day waiting.....

31 Dec 2010

07.00 am : me and a bunch of friends caught a bus from Newtown, heading to Macquarie's Point. I know that place is the most wanted NYE spot, so we better be hurry up
The streets were quiet that morning though..., not so many vehicles or people around, so I thought we must be quite early :p

7.30 am : arrive at Art Gallery road, oh my gosh...., there are hundreds, and I guess almost a thousand of people already queuing :(. Geez, what time did they get there? I bet they spent overnight, and slept there. We joined the queue which already overflowed in the park nearby

7.30 - 10.00 am : queuing in the park, playing some board games with friends, eating, and people watching, just for killing the time.

10.00 am : the gate was finally open, and we started moving...yaaaayyy...., but it's still a long way to go to the spot.
