I spent some time in Sydney recently, a week-long holiday with Daughter and Son-in-Law, where I did a bit of tripping down memory lane, as I grew up in Sydney, but haven’t been back for a look-see in decades.
Much has changed, especially some of the places we visited. Paddy’s Markets down in the Haymarket used to be an Aladdin’s Cave of quirky little stalls, selling strange and wonderful things at op-shop prices. Stalls are still there today, but the quirk has definitely left the building. Never mind, we tracked down the lovely old brass boar outside Sydney Hospital and we all got to rub his shiny nose and make a wish.
