It was a scorching summer’s day when we arrived in Sydney. We were staying in Glebe and the air in the busy, dusty street felt thick, so we made our first stop of our weekend somewhere much cooler – by the water in front of the Sydney Opera House, at Opera Bar.
Naturally, drinks were overpriced, but this is to be expected:
a) In Australia
b) In the most expensive city in our fair, expensive country.
c) In front of a national icon
The gorgeous view was worth the $8 or $9 I paid for the dash of vodka lemonade in my glass of ice.
