Before heading out for our final full day in Sydney, Bob and I debated how to spend our short remaining time. I suggested the New South Wales Art Gallery, the Australian Museum, St. Andrews' Cathedral, the Sydney Aquarium, and the Sydney Tower.  I marked these on a map – in the order that made the most sense.  Bob vetoed the museum, art gallery, and aquarium. 

“But, that only leaves us the Tower and St. Andrews.  We'll be done in no time,” I protested.

“Then we can add the others as time permits,” he replied.

On our third day in Sydney the thermometer climbed to 75 degrees by 8:30 a.m. when we left the Menzies. We asked the concierge for directions to the Museum of Sydney which appeared to be a few blocks away.  Following his instructions and armed with a city map, we headed off, oblivious to our fate - we would be lost within five minutes.

San Chez Tapas Restaurant
A Trip to Spain Minus the Airfare

By Julie Albrecht Royce

Luciano Pavarotti said, “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”  

Approach your dining experience at San Chez with a sense of adventure. It is a place to be savored and enjoyed – indeed, a place to give your full attention. We gave it ours on a recent trip to Grand Rapids and came away happier for the opportunity.
