Postcard

We are having a great time in Sydney but lordy,  one either walks up a steep hill or down a steep hill.

  3. Melbourne and Adelaide were laid out properly as planned cities. Sydney grew up accidentally, the roads going wherever they wandered, the hills being left as they were found.

    I still find Sydney a scary place to drive in because you cannot see what might be coming at you, on the other side of the hill.

    1. Hels, I've driven in Sydney three times. It is stressful but I didn't find it any worse than any other busy city where I did not know my way.

  4. Yup. It is like that. Hill after hill after hill.
    Glad you are having fun though. Very glad.

    1. EC, instead of looking at distances to walk, you look at hill steepness. Thanks.

    1. Fun60, yes, that was a serious fail. How to get photos from camera to tablet? Well, with the right cord.

  11. Is this following your foreshadowed trip to Balmoral? That's why they have the Mosman Rider. Mind you, as Merlesworld has pointed out, the gradients are milder in the more plebeian parts.

    1. No Marcellous, but wow, that was steep. Are you saying Merle lives in plebeian area? Her area is not too bad.

  12. Think of the workout your thighs and calves are getting. Just remember to put your feet up at the end of the day.

  14. Try living in Surry Hills - Albion and Foveaux Streets are heart attack material trying to walk up them. But all the hilly streets give you great leg muscles.

    1. Allan, I think we were in a bus along Albion Street and a tram used to run along Foveaux Street I think. No doubt Sydney inner suburban people are fitter.

    Dont quite know how long I’ll last though.
