Two weekends ago I was in Sydney and had the pleasure of seeing the divine Dina (of Cairo) dancing to my favourite arabic song, Enta Omri. I was in heaven. Enta Omri never fails to bring tears to my eyes and shivers down my spine, and only Dina can dance with the intense emotion that is needed to do justice to the song. Here is the legendary Om Kolthoum singing my favourite bit.

This was our favourite walk as it was mainly out in the open with spectacular views all around. As getting to the start of the walk involves driving 8kms on gravel road, it is also much quieter than other walks. We had a glorious lunch spot perched on the cliff edge, overlooking a waterfall.
We have just spent 5 glorious days in the Blue Mountains, bushwalking our little hearts out. It is so gorgeous there...once you get away from the horrid "scenic world" tourist trap.

On Sunday, a group of us went for a lovely walk to the top of Mt Cordeaux at Cunninghams Gap. It is only about 75 mins to the top, and then you can walk on further to Bare Rock if still feeling energetic. The highlight for me is always the spectacular spear lilies on the way to Bare Rock.
