In Sydney, Roni Otmy surveys the surf near Bondi Beach where Twain tried his hand at shark fishing. Today, shark nets make it
possible to surf safely. "Sydney Harbor is shut in behind a precipice that extends some miles like a wall, and exhibits no break to
the ignorant stranger. It has a break in the middle, but it makes so little show that even Captain Cook sailed by it without seeing it.
We entered and cast anchor, and in the morning went oh-ing and ah-ing in admiration up through the crooks and turns of the
spacious and beautiful harbor -- a harbor which is the darling of Sydney and the wonder of the world."
