Sydney Australia By: Criztal Hernandez
Why Sydney, Australia? My dream vacation would have to be Sydney. I have always wanted to visit the Opera House and see the kangaroos. I also would love to study abroad there. Bias, Gene. sydneyoperahouse9.jpg. July, 2004. Pics4Learning. 30 Oct 2008 <http://pics.tech4learning.com>
