I finally managed to put some photos of my Sydney trip together.
This was Chinatown in some dank underground Chinese fruit and vege marketplace. It was disgusting and sticky and dirty and crowded — Haha, I loved it! However, I kept stepping in tomatoes. It was so alive with colour and noise and Asian madness.
I literally gasped when I shuttled down the hill in the bus towards Bondi Beach. The bay was very pretty. Especially with all the houses perched on the hill. The breaks looked a bit wishy washy – not big enough to surf on, and a little too rough to swim in. No wonder everyone just sat on the beach posing in their string bikinis.
Although I planned to avoid all the touristy places, by the end of my trip I didn’t quite feel like I was back in Sydney. So I took a walk through Darling Harbour and Circular Quay to gawk at the big Sydney icons… again. The place was crawling with tourists and tourist attractions. Walking around with my backpack, a map in my pocket and an Asian face, I blended in quite well.
The big photo above was me standing at the base of the Sydney Opera House looking down into the harbour and spotting these invading ufo-like jellyfish in the water.
