I promise this to be my last rant on prices in Sydney, but bear with me for the last time, here is my favourite – 13 dollar bananas. That’s right, the peasant food, the fuel, the fruit that runs whole economies from Ecuador to Thailand, and is a staple diet in many places, precisely because its nutritious, abundant and affordable, in Australia this same fruit currently in supermarkets costs 13-14 dollars per kg, so each banana comes at about 3-4 dollars. You can buy dried almonds, even fresh kangaroo steak cheaper than that. Among my other favourites is 20 dollar day bus pass, 40 dollar china town haircut, 2 dollar ATM fees, 20 dollar movie tickets, 8 dollar beer and gazillion dollar international travel. Tphuu, done, over it, finito.
Ok, about the title photo, well, there was supposed to be a nice fresh list of cute model photos, but as it has been raining non stop for the last 3 days, I had to cancel two location shoots, so all you get is this picture from my window. It’s a nice one though, makes me smile, guys at Sydney Water have a sense of humour.
p.s. On the bright side, it looks like I finally found a place to live, at least something came out of this weekend.
