Sydney – again

Just a quick post. I’m in Sydney again for a week or so – came down for another medical procedure, which went very well, and I was allowed out of hospital after only one night, instead of two as I expected. I’m staying down here another week, though, just in case of any complications arising.

Sydney, as usual, is noisy and busy and crowded – but the jacarandas are out, spreading blue-flowered branches over parks and pathways,  and there’s a red-flowering tree that often appears near a jacaranda, creating a gorgeous red/green/blue vista. As always in Sydney, I’m stunned by the rich greens of the foliage, much denser than we see inland, and the many flowering plants with large, tropical-style flowers.

The people in Sydney are such a rich, anti inflammatories complex, mix – all sorts from trendy young things, artistic types, business professionals, to older immigrants from less fortunate places than here. Just across the road from the internet cafe I’m in, there’s a man busking, playing the Chinese violin – I’ve forgotten what it’s called. But its a fascinating contrast – the ancient Chinese music, flowing in and out of the hum of the traffic rushing by.

No photos in today’s post, I’m sorry, but I’ll try to get some in the next few days. Today is forecast to be stormy and rainy, but tomorrow should be fine – and I might be feeling up to wandering a little further afield!

  1. Bronwyn, hope the ‘proceedures’ are nothing serious and not stealing the smile from your face. —- I’m missing photos. I pretend I can see a musition playing their Erhu (just this once). —- Eric
