Happy Mardi Gras!

Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras is a month long celebration, starting on the first week of February and ends on the first weekend of March with a parade as a grand finale. Of course, when my sister asked me when do I want to fly to Sydney for a weekend, I picked the Mardi Gras weekend. Afterall, how many times will you have the opportunity to fly over to watch drag queens and dykes on bikes?
