After coming close to DEATH (slight exaggeration) we hiked back to a spot where the steepest railway in the world took us back to the top of Echo Point. It cost $11, but it was well worth avoiding 900 steps up a steep staircase. One professor and a few students had decided to go up those steps, so while awaiting their arrival back in Katoomba, the group that chickened out and paid $11 for the railway went to a restaurant to eat. There, I had the opportunity to try a Kangaroo burger. It was quite tasty, though slightly chewy. They prepared it more like steak, but I found it to be delicious!
The train ride back to Sydney was much better, due to the fact that I slept the whole way. My muscles are very sore, but that means my body worked hard! Pain is just weakness leaving the body... Well, that's a lie, but really it's nice knowing that I was able to make it through the experience. Those that knew me before college, can understand why I gained immense satisfaction with myself. All my reasons for losing so much weight came back and slapped me in the face. The trip reminded me of why I live and eat the way I do, and will ensure that I continue!
