Following my last post, after two days in Sydney I can no longer fit into my daughter’s size 5 jeans (size 5 is about a 9 in real language).
A pork roll from James’s favourite cheap lunch spot.
At least I have avoided all the yummy pastries from the (count them) five gorgeous bakeries that surround our hotel.
The food in Sydney is cheap and delicious and so difficult to not eat.
The first night we went to a little Vietnamese place in Surry Hills (or was it Darlinghurst) called Phamish.
They started serving at 6pm and there was a queue waiting to be seated (including us).
The highlight – the to-die-for duck and prawn rolls – watching mum eat one and then realise they had prawns in them was priceless.
We’ve also gone to see Wicked – the musical.
Clever story, great music and amazing set and costumes.
We had a brilliant time.
Last night I went with my sister to the Cinema Verona to see an Italian film called I am Love – starring Tilda Swinton.
The Italians have a very different approach to film making – lots of loud crashing music and close ups.
Good film though.
And walking down Oxford St late at night was fun too.
Today… I’m not sure what we’re doing… something touristy before the exhibition opening probably.
Then drinkies and art.
Photos to come.
