Arrival in Sydney

Almost without any incidences – disregarding a lost (and luckily later on found!) phone, an only supposedly lost purse and some puzzling about what our suitcases looked like – the whole flight went very well. During the customs and border control at Sydney Airport there were also no difficulties.

The remaining time we used to assemble and test Lisa in our appartement. Her base got shaken quite a lot during her suitcase trip around the globe so that the internal controller boards had to be fixed. However, Lisa is operating again now. Tomorrow she is moving to the ICC venue where the RoboCup takes place.

TIAGo did not arrive yet at the venue. Hopefully he does tomorrow as then there is the first preparation day for the teams… Despite reaching Sydney two weeks prior to us, TIAGo faced some problems reaching his place to stay and we are currently trying to manage his successful arrival in time.

Stay tuned!
