well... kings cross is all the fun i expected it to be: hookers next to posh clubs next to cheap indian food, etc... its dirty, edgy, packed, etc... great fun for people watching

buuuuuuut: something feels just wrong around here... nightlife is VERY pretentious (in the bad way) but on the other hand people are drunk beyond the acceptable. that's just wrong! every place tries to upscale itself by having 3 bouncers checking guestlists & the usual silly stuff while the crowd inside looks as serious as a mcdonalds kiddie birthday party on lsd

maybe its just because im not in a party mood at the moment (my hostel crowd being pretty boring adds to that i suppose) but i cannot really enjoy it :)

sydney on the other hand is a great city: the opera house is amazing! never thought it to be that great... its a charming city, i like the rocks especially. but back to pretentious: why does everyone run around completely dressed up during the day? the girls look more polished than the south beach crowd in miami... not that i complain, they are gorgeous - but it's just too much!

soo i changed my plans about my sydney stay:

i will stay here in kings x till monday, on tuesday i travel up to the blue mountains for one night and will stay back in sydney but on bondi beach for the last 2 nights..  why? because bondi beach is AWESOME! its touristy, its packed, its a beach and its exactly what i need before heading to asia... it reminds me a lot of rio & south beach hehe
