Exploring neighbourhoods is one of my favourite pastimes.
One day (in Sydney) I chose Darlinghurst to stroll around in. A lovely area filled with art deco architecture, especially from the late Modernism era. Mixed with terraced houses.
There are lots of cafes, eateries, bars and shops.
Here and there I sat down for a delicious cuppa cappu in a hip hotspot that spoke to me by the looks of it. Carpe Diem; life is good!
If you’re a street art hunter like me, be sure to keep an eye out for some great pieces in Darlinghurst.
In my upcoming blogpost about Darlinghurst I will go more into detail about all this, larded with awesome pictures.
For now, I want to share one thing I saw, that I found utterly hilarious. To be exact: the funniest thing I saw in Sydney!
To have a bit of context, it is crucial to know that Darlinghurst is known to be a gay area. From what I observed, I would say particularly for gay men, where as Newtown seems to be the place to be for lesbians, as I was told.
So at one point I passed along a sexshop for gay men. In the shop window was a male mannequin (no, not a live person, silly!) on all fours, dressed -well, dressed?, not really!- in black leather. Gagged S&M-style. Pretty hardcore stuff.
I walked further, past the neighbour of the sex-shop; a Thai restaurant. That’s when I saw the sign with the name of the restaurant:
Thai me up. Capiche?!
Thai me up! Now THAT’s what I call a sense of humour. Is it just me, or do you find that funny too?
