Sweet Dreams in Sydney

2007 332

In 2007, I spent a week in Australia visiting friends before flying back to Thailand to work. Apart from the severe jet-lag and heavy insomnia, I spent the time mingling with Irish people, drinking in Irish pubs and sleeping in an apartment with walls draped in tri-colour and county flags.

One day I managed to get out and explore the city. On my travels I popped into the Wildlife Sydney Zoo and spotted this fellow catching forty winks, something I was longing to do myself.

Since then I’ve eased off on the big ‘Irish Style’ nights out, I’ve resolved never to take such a long flight for such a short stay (both for environmental and mental health reasons) and I’ve been put off any visits to a zoo recently after seeing one too many depressed animals. Still, it was nice to see that this chap was taking the whole incarceration thing in his stride.

Sweet Dreams.
