Sydney Travel Notes # 1

Hyde Park
I am in Sydney now and got an opportunity to go around this beautiful city little bit. I hope to do few posts on Sydney in the coming days. Here comes Hyde Park.

Name after the park in Central London, Hyde Park is a large greenery right in the center of the city. Its some lot smaller than the Central Park of New York City, nevertheless its great to see a park in the midst of concrete jungle.
