Beginning of Sydney

Submitted by Lindsey Berger on the 2024 Winter NURS program in Sydney, Australia…

The botanical garden

My program began this week in Sydney. This city is amazing and has shocked me so far. We began with the tour of the Rocks, and then went to the Botanical Gardens. We had an Aboriginal tour guide who taught us about their connection to the plants and land. Since it is a nursing program, the next day we toured a hospital and saw a huge dialysis unit. I was so impressed. Overall, this week I have been amazed by the city. The clean and safe environment is refreshing in a city. Public transportation has been very easy and clean. Everyone here has been very nice and willing to help out a tourist. So far loving Sydney! (Submitted on January 17, 2024)
