Sydney City In a Word: Tacky!

Okay that's not me bagging out my own city...it's what I have been thinking this last year I've been back and when I surveyed a bunch of Europeans about their thoughts on Sydney city- they independently came to the same conclusion providing the word above!

I was walking around the city at night looking at the tasteless fashions, tasteless overkill on makeup, listening to the unattractive retching of women throwing up on the street in full view of everyone walking past as their boyfriends held their hair out of the way and it was only 10pm! and passing by many oversexed yobbos and fearing for my safety.

That's what Sydney to me has become. I have but one more area of this country to "test out" before knowing where I aim to escape to. Although I think I probably like the fact that Europe and its people are so cultured relative to us Down Under, nothing beats this clean air, beautiful environment and wide open space...the problem with cities apart from them cooking my immune system electromagnetic radiation wise is EVERYBODY smokes and its just like being stuck in one big chimney where I inevitably get sick from my chemical sensitivity...

It pains me to hear you say that. Sydney is the best!!! Maybe you need to live in the burbs for a bit, being so close to the center is obviously skewing your opinion of home :P

The grass is always greener, they say. I think everywhere in the world has problems. Come live here for a week and you will kiss the ground when you go home.

LOL Shannon I just said the same thing to someone- we are so on the same wavelength lately! But really, I'd survive a week without wanting to kiss the ground here! I'm pretty good with vaguely podunk places...sure how podunk it gets compared to Down Under though!

M, the other key word the Europeans feedbacked with which I also agree is this city is seriously full of superficial, fake, insincere ppl- I think of it like a little LA or something. But you're right my qualms stay with the city city...
