Sun Shines Everywhere 10714

The Vigil family, Monica, Sofia and Max (with dad behind the camera) visited Australia in February along with their favorite local newspaper, the Alameda Sun. The kids loved the Sydney Opera House, shown in the distance, and were amazed to learn more than 1 million (1,056,006) stoneware tiles were used during its construction. The landmark building was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon after an international competition. Completed in 1973, it took 14 years to build.
