Sydney and Marsupials

These are old photos from a trip to Australia in 2005 that I thought I’d better share now, while I remember where they are!

LOTS of cockatoos!

Antique Scuba Gear! From a shop in The Rocks – Sydney’s Old Town.

I have no idea what animal this is supposed to be, but this puppet (promoting a cell phone company) cracked me up! I feel much the same love as I once did for Saturday Nite Live’s “Toonces the Driving Cat”!

At Harry De Wheels in Woolloomooloo – With everything on them, these famously tasty hot dogs have the most unlikely combo of toppings: mashed peas, chili con carne, grilled garlic, cheese and tabasco sauce!
