Living in a foreign culture...

One thing I am looking forward to is that when I have hunger cravings on a Sunday evening I can just go out and get something tasty!

Had a major pie craving and after walking ALL around the block the only thing I could find open was the dingiest of pubs- yes that is something my country excels at! I am really quite sick of this country, the culture, its people...definitely need to get away so that when I come back I can appreciate it again. The longer I live here the more I notice things I don't like seem to be on the increase.

Sunday night is a black hole here... I'm looking forward to experiencing cultures where at night it's still happening and alive and not just with doof doof clubs and sleazy bars. Really, this country is very boring at night. I guess it's worse in New Zealand but hey at least they have spectacular nature and clean air everywhere and lots of sheep :)

I think I start to understand why all my my age and older friends left a looooong time ago and didn't come back! This city is too oversaturated in baby souls, bimbos and himbos, american culture and obnoxious extroverts. And not very conducive to that which isn't...I still love the natural geography we enjoy though...not many places can beat it!

That may be part of the reason why your friends left, but from my experience, that's just what friends do. At around age 15 BAM! They scatter to all four corners of the earth. Really sad.

I agree not many places can beat our natural geography Unfortunately I also agree about the night life and that the things I don't like seem to be on the increase. But there are also many beautiful souls out there.

ha! the quarter life crisis seems a distant memory. now it's knowing what you want but having to tolerate your rigid limitations until the seed is ripe. i think my experience is a little different cos this is my 2nd spin on the merry go round...and I've lived my life somewhat in reverse as well...old>young!!!

FG have you ever been to this city? I think you might hate it if you lived here...

You are in Sydney? I have'nt been there (except in transit). I was relating you comment to my Australian city also. With the possible exception of Melbourne I don't think any Australian city is known for its night life. Unless you enjoy getting blind drunk and fighting. I made a post sometime last year called City Streets (I think) describing a walk at night to the city train station.

I always heard that Sydney was such a cool place to hook around. I guess you have to find other spots on this planet now. Being awake at the middle of night in Manhattan now, I can't say it's an exciting night life besides me :) We're just looking for something we haven't found yet... (the Dr. Evil laugh is virtual)
