We spent November and December in Malaga to learn Spanish before we went to Germany for Christmas. Beginning of January we flew to Beijing and stayed there a few weeks. Now we are in Australia in preparation for our Yachtmasters. Pretty tough, but today we took the ferry from Manly to Sydney and enjoyed the city life. After we came back we had once again a huge seafood platter for dinner. Next week will be passage making, but the weather forecast is not good. Now it is already raining cats and dogs.
