Outing - Thursday 9 July

The twelve who went on the Sydney University outing  all enjoyed it immensely. They saw a lot of sandstone Gothic, learnt a lot about Egyptian mummies in the Nicholson Museum, and as a complete contrast, went through the ten-year-old Law School, a marvellous building. The guide was a charming and very knowledgeable lady, an archaeologist by trade, with much to say and a complete lack of interest in the clock - our nominally 90-minute tour lasted from 10am until 12:20pm, after which they ambled across the Parramatta Road footbridge for an enjoyable pub lunch.
