Beware of the scientologist!
What a day!
Don't even know where to start.
So we woke up at 10 and started our trip to the city at 12 or so with only an apple and some juice in our stomachs. We wondered up Elizabeth street to find Big hostel which seemed nice on the net but we ended up with a $31/night note on our hands back on the street. No way were we gonna pay that much. Though another 2 nights at our hostel cost later in the evening $3 more than originally ($23).
I guess we seemed so lost trying to find Potts Point that some guy asked if we needed help. He was sooo nice, we walked a couple blocks with him. He was going to Manly to buy a summer scooter. He was definately THE friendly Australian I'd hear about. Well, our Potts Point Pink house accommodation exploration got a bit delayed while we saw Hyde Park and walked around there. Weird birds here. St. Mary's Cathedral was awesome with it's golden fences and crypt. I wanted to light up a small tuikku infront of Mary's statue and some lady was throwing burnt candles vigourously to the bin and missed one. While she was kissing the statue I kindly picked it up and when she started to look for it and I told her I'd picked it she started thanking me and kissed me on the cheek. So guys, I guess I'm now some sort of a saint. Hahahaa.
We couldn't find Pink house at Potts point cause we had no address so we walked back through Kings cross and Woollomoolloo. The houses here are so pretty and decorated but in a bad shape. Some had homeless ppl on their front balcony, especially in W.
Back at St. Mary's we spotted the "center" and found Mickey Dee's (big mac 5,45) and the first shoe shop! Lotta, you would definately die. The heels here are finally up to our standards.
And we finally found Woolsworth, the "Prisma" with a twist, that is cheap labels.
Besides food we bought a one litre sunblock thingy and a one litre moisturiser - for $15 which is $7,5 for both! So you do the math! It's no Nivea, but hey, if others use Homebrand, so do we :D
Also grocerieshopping was cheap, we bought 3-4 days food for about $7,5 each.
Some clerk (chinese girl) asked if I wanted to model for her, since she needed a portrait model for her school job. She gave me her number but I think I'm a bit too busy for modelling this week.
Right when we walked out of Wools a tidy, banker looking guy stopped us and begged to anwser a few questions, like "if you could, what would you change about yourself, what do you need the most at the moment etc." and since he was standing in front of Commonwealth bank and the obvious anwser to the whatdoyouwant-question is money, I thought he was going to persuade us to open a bank account.
But no. He asked us to follow him and with bags on our hands we followed him around the corner just to notice the Scientology sign. He got me on the stairs and told me that I could "find more about myself inside and do a stress test" when I told him "we don't do religion" and turned around. Ok, there were 3 scientologists around me but luckily one of them finally understood I wasn't interested about their servises "at the moment".
Scary. And just as I'd laughed at the sign 1 hour ago...........
