Sunday Morning In A Suburb

Day three in NSW and it has been cooler than expected. I am still recovering from the pizza I devoured last nite thus a simple coffee and crackers will do for now.

Yagoona is a quiet neighborhood filled with Asians and Lebanese. I only saw a few of “my neighbors”…mostly in the mornings when I sit in the frontyard. People going to work. People walking. Or cruising along Willet and Saltash streets.

I have been to the local grocery store (that’s Aldi with a very cool Christmas ad being shown every commercial break), a local bank, a farmer’s market (to buy coffee beans) and a park. Yes, I am living the suburb life at the moment. Far from the madding crowd, which is really good. News on TV shows that a lot are being rounded by police in Sydney due to violence resulting from alcohol. Hah, I imagine what is it like in Westend Hostel area where I spent my weekend last year.

Hope to get to the city (that is Sydney) soon. And the other places. My list at the moment include the following, which Boo promised to take me in the next few days (or else I will take the next train to Sydney CBD):

        1. Cronulla Beach
