My hosts David and Troy are dear old friends from New York City who happen to be in Sydney on business for a couple months. Today I took them on the coastal cliff walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach. I later learned that at the same time as we were walking, my version of Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’ was being played as the bridal processional at a Filipino wedding across town in western Sydney. My nose is almost sunburned. I love this country.
