Back in Sydney

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

A happy new year to everyone.

 

Spend the last moment of 2009 onboard an Air Asia plane, with the pilot announcing the countdown. It would have been perfect if there was champagne onboard. The planes from KL landed in Melbourne airport just after midnight, and thus spend almost the whole night at the Crown Casino.

 

I am not a frequent visitor to Melbourne as my last real visit was in 2000. This time I noticed the large number of Indians in the city’s crowd. They are everywhere, from New Year revellers to cleaners. Africans are also a common sight there, and it is rather common to see mixed couple (black men accmpanied by white women)  walking along the street of Melbourne.

 

I have expanded on the  recollection of recent trip as well as allowing my thoughts to wonder on a few matters
