The most important show

Call my 6 other wonderful buddies. That’s is right the Sydney opera house is one of the seven wonders of the world if you already didn't know, but it also represents Australia not as the stereotype cattle and ranch area (like us in Texas) but as a wealthy city and thriving society. Speaking of wealth it also brings in a good amount of cash through tourism.Just to remind you most Texans are not cowboys and neither are Australians.

A chorus of facts

I know this whole time you’ve been wondering when the interesting stuffs gonna come well here it is!! One of the craziest things is how bad the team of builds were at estimating they said it would take seven years to build when it took twenty five years, but it wasn't just them let's also blame the architect who said it would cost seven million when it actually took twenty one million. Sorry but that's all the interesting things we have for you today.
