Do you remember my shelf/life shopshoot? As I arrived quite early, I spent about 20 minutes roaming around the local streets.
My sister used to live in Surry Hills and as she didn't own a car, we used to walk everywhere. The back streets of Surry Hills are pretty familiar territory.
When my grandmother lived in Sydney, Surry Hills had such a bad reputation that she used to drive through there with the window blinds drawn down.
Even now, Surry Hills is a curious mix of restaurants, design shops, expensive terrace houses and the down and out. Just about every time I dine out, it's somewhere in Surry Hills. Last Sunday I had dinner at bills, surry hills, an old favourite and with Christmas festivities around the corner might try out some of the new restaurants.
It's been a busy week at work and I'll be at a seminar all day on Friday so I won't be back again until next week,
Bye for now,
