I have friends in town this weekend and we've been gallivanting around the city on drinking and #foodie adventures.
A stopover at Naked for Satan was a real treat, we got some great seats near the bar (despite it being busy) and my cravings for mulled wine were satisfied.
It gets busy, but extremely impressed with how they've fitted out the rooftop and a great spot for people-watching too.
Am bouncing around Sydney for the next few days for a mixture of work and pleasure. It's the first time I'm back since departing and I'm proper excited about it. The weather, pace, seeing old friends, and a little bit of the unknown are all featuring up here.
I've spent the afternoon churning through some biz errands in a cafe and felt like a wanker taking a #selfie from my computer - so did the respectable thing and took a #sneaky one from my tethered phone.
Have a great weekend and dream big!
Strange how things can look after a bit of perspective.
I don't think you believe it is the shark or the lion or the crocodile. I'm sure, like me, you'll be surprised at how deadly things you had never heard of are... freshwater snails (!), tesete fly, our bff dogs.
And even if you suspected we humans are the most deadly animal, we are by a long margin, you surely did not realize we are outclassed by mosquitoes!
The sad part is how easy the latter problem is to fix. If only we were not distracted with spreading "freedom" or protesting the right to carry x or prohibit y. 725,000 killed each year. 725,000.
Had a delicious time at the Mercat Hotel and this adjoining eatery. It had a wide selection of smoked meats that you can go and appreciate being cooked from the balcony. I enjoyed the Fancy Sanga at monster size. It featured brisket, sweet BBQ sauce, pickles and this wonderfully textured cheddar. The fresh onions added a bit of crunch to otherwise soft-ish mouthfuls.
Smashed it over the course of Sunday lunch-time, to the tunes of accordion and banjo. I could give or take the music, but will return to try the BBQ ribs (they'd ran out during my sortie).
When I first heard of unconscious bias, my mind wanted to reject it. As someone that prides themselves on equality, there was no way I could possibly be tarred from the same brush.
The more I learned, the more I realised that sure enough, it creeps into everyday life, and this excerpt from Brain Pickings provides some answers why.
