We have managed to luck into a fantastic place in Bondi Beach, Sydney. Our good friend has got us the use of a flat only a few minutes walk from the beach for the duration of our stay.
It was certainly a strange experience heading to the waterfront on Sunday and seeing the massive police presence gathered there in the wake of the Sydney race related ‘riots’. They certainly weren’t taking any chances. Roadblocks and random searches were the order of the day with a number of arrests reported in the news in regard to white supremisists. Scary stuff. Gives a real look a the direction Australia is heading towards a police state – the end justifies the means they would have us believe.
Metrosexual is the word of the week. It refers to the immacuately dressed and presented males of Australia, strutting their 2005/2006 seasons clothing and hair products. Bondi is a mecca for the beautiful people, and pink shirts are all the rage for the blokes. Not that the term bloke seems to fit so well.
