Saturday Soliloquy #21: Perth

It was a LONG ride from Adelaide to Perth.  My school, Edith Cowan University was in Perth, so I had to get there!  I honestly don't remember anything about that ride.  It's just a pop into Perth.

Perth was nice.  Very cool and UN-drivable city center.  It was specifically set up for walking to shop.  I liked that a great deal.

I remember finding it amazing and wonderful to investigate all the shops down little alleys.  I felt the old anxiety about getting lost that I felt in Japan (like when I drew a circle) and actually thought I was lost a few times.  It was such a blessing to find myself again (never was lost, after all!) and realize that the downtown area was really quite navigable and relatively difficult to REALLY get lost in.  What a gift THAT!

One of the many things I loved about Perth were the awesome sidewalk art!  There were some that looked REALLY unusual and others (like these roos) that were really representative of Oz, in general.
