When I first arrived in Sydney, the housing looked completely different to what I was used to. All the houses were higgilty piggilty. It was more industrial, dark, and run-down than I thought it would be.
We moved into a flat at Clovelly, we should have bought it because it was selling for only $80,000 at the time. But we thought it was a dump even though it was right beside the ocean! There were so many cockroaches.
sea air, sweat, dank, barbeque, sunscreen, haze, heat and the feeling of your skin being burned.
