On Thursday I went into actual Perth to meet up with a new friend and have a look around. I thought I was already in Perth, but apparently not. In fact, Perth isn't even on my address. Actual Perth consists primarily of the CBD - which is around 40-50 mins drive from where I'm currently living.
I love this guy! I didn't read the plaque so don't actually know who he is or why there is a statue of someone doing a handstand/breakdancing in the middle of the street - but it's pretty cool regardless. I wonder if there are any sheep statues anywhere like this one in Canberra:
Sydney boasts some fine sheep statues as well, but I can't be bothered dredging through all my photos to find a picture. Can anybody explain this phenomenon?
We went for a walk along the riverbank (where I neglected to take any decent scenery shots) and stumbled across this dude trying in vain to swallow a pufferfish that was clearly too big. Nice try, buddy.
We also stumbled upon this random little alleyway. It's super cute and completely different to all the other areas I saw in the CBD which were considerably more corporate.
|Awkward blatant tourist pose.|
I'll have to take some more scenic pictures sometime. I've secretly been waiting until the weather is better so that it will look more awesome. Below is a picture I took last night of the sunset as Emma and I drove into the city. Emma promises me that there will be many more like it - this pleases me.
We were off to do some late night shopping as I start a new job as receptionist on Monday and need some clothing that isn't Emma's! I hadn't been shopping in forever as most of my clothing in the last year had been given to me through clothes swaps and the such. So I am the proud owner of new pants, skirts, and several blouses. How exciting. I also have a new hair colour and cut. So much for saving! I'm quite stoked though that it took less than a week to be offered not one but two jobs - and I'm really excited to be doing something that I've not tried before.
Roast dinner at Emma's Mum's place tonight! Nom nom nom.
