Sydney Harbour from Taronga Zoo

    25 Books for 2009: Still reading The World by Jan Morris. He's just been very rude about Sydney, though he did say the harbour was pretty.

    It's a really excellent read; it's organized decade by decade, from the 50s to the 90s, and so it's a bit like a very personal history of the world in the second half of the 20th century. The writing is genuinely good, and the content is fascinating. I've reached Africa in the 60s - lots of newly independent states.

      mmmm, I could be rude about Sydney too, and I live there! but the harbour is really the best (now I'll have to read the book to see what he says about us)
