People in glass towers
I decided to spend the day wandering around the city...trying to get an idea where everything is and how to get there. I walked down by the waterfront and checked out the many boats and other water-central stuff.
Nothing too exciting or out of the norm, but it's always nice to chillax around water regions. There is also this cool brick building down by the water that I enjoy for some reason. It kind of reminds me of a building that would be in London or Torrence.
Then, I decided to go up into the Sky Tower. Geez...it's a wee bit up in the air...
They even have these open glass floor areas that, although it says it's as solid as the concrete floor in the rest of the place, it's still creepy and a bit unsettling to walk on them and look straight down to the ground.
Dear Lord in heaven above....
I tended to stay away from those....gave my knees the wibbly-wobblies.
But, the 360 degree view of the city is amazing and you can pretty much see everything for a bazillion miles around.
I also saw someone bungie jump off of the tower above us and caught it on video. Now, if I can just figure out how to get it to upload to YouTube (tried twice...not working so much), I'll post it.
If not....just imagine looking at one of those incredible views and suddenly a body, in an ill-fitting jumpsuit, comes flying down from above and then, just as quickly, it disappears from view...screaming to the ground far below.
Now add some soiled undies to that image....
Yeah...that pretty much covers it.
