Now that I'm on the other side of the world, here's a few things that I've observed.
Food is insanely expensive here. Like double the price of the US. You know how you can get a roasted chicken from the grocery store for about $6 in your grocery store? Yea, it's A$14 dollars here. You know what the exchange rate is? 1:1
Actually, everything is expensive here.
I've been watching a lot of Rugby. Still not 100% sure what's going on, but I think I'm getting the hang of things soon and it looks fun.
There are Aussie versions of 2 of my favorite shows. So you think you can dance Australia and Project Runway Australia. Sweet.
A new video game here costs A$85. That's just insane.
I was awake at 4am today due to jet lag. I started walking around looking for apartments at 8am. I walked by several clubs that were just starting to close. I later talked to a friend here who said she had an early night at the club last night. She left at 5am.
Driving from the right side is weird. Not getting hit by a car is a bit of a challenge for me right now.
I need to learn the metric system and to tell the temperature in Celsius. It's screwing with me when I look at stuff.
8 thin slices of hard Salomi costs A$6. Other cold cuts are equally expensive.
Going out tonight. Should have more interesting things to report tomorrow.
