We did not see everything in Chinatown yesterday so we have a second round today. We have visited more Chinese temple, seen more street art and walk too much! Yes, I prefer cycling than walking. This is much easier :-) Tonight is the last day of 2015. We planned to see the fireworks. We saw it but not in the best conditions. Finally, this is when we returned to our campsite that the night really started. Always no plan is the best one :-) That worked for 2015 and it’s going to work in 2016, for sure! Happy New Year!
Today, we are visiting Chinatown, the real part. Until now, we stayed around the backpacker area. It is still in chinatown but on its edge. All the price are quite high but if you walk 5 minutes to the east side and follow the tourists, you will discover this old area with lots of souvenir shops, bicycles to rent, ice cream to eat and street art.
Today we are walking around a new Sydney suburb, Glebe. There is lots a street art to watch and some of them has noticeable thematic.
Every year, on April 25th, Australia and New Zealand commemorate the landing of the Anzac at Gallipoli in 1915. And this unique day also offer the opportunity to play “Two Up” a gambling game. In Newtown, some pub participate to the event and Robin proposed me to have a look and be ready to loose 20$.
Wendy left Sydney for few days and asked me if I could have a look to one of the place we shot yesterday. There was too much cars and the Photoshop work becomes painful. I don’t really know how works this camera but I will try. Let’s go!
Today we are back to the street with Wendy to shot more Street art around Newtown. Then we will have to do some Photoshop work because sometimes the walls are so big that even the wide angle camera lens is not enough.
A friend of Robin, Wendy, who lives somewhere else comes regularly to Sydney and she stays in Newtown. She is a street artist and today we are going to take some pictures of the best “pieces” around Newtown. This is very interesting because she knows who did this, who did that and the different crews.
