I was chilling out tonight, watching the latests news on tv. Legs stretched, almost wishing I had to self-isolate instead of waking at 4h30, tomorrow morning to get to work in time. I was checking the short videos I made during my Oz Tour, when I realized that one of the places we had visited and liked very very much, was probably closed now (and it is, I checked).
Eat Street is most probably the capital of street food in Australia, if not in the world. The colorful complex is a breathtaking puzzle of food stands and music venues of all kinds. Wether you want to nibble on churros while shaking your bon-bon on techno music, or have BBQ short ribs while listening to something more folky, Eat Street has it!
It is without a doubt, one of the places most reprentative of the impression I had of Australians… Heaven for foodies who are just looking for a good time. Something like the ultimate, and most extreme open house party… And boy, is it crowded!!
Well, it was, before covid-19 forced people in charge to close Eat Street down for a while.
And I realized how comfortable I was, in the middle of this happy crowd. Comfortable and unaware that my mindset would soon take a turn and not for the best. I wonder how long it will take, before I feel so good spending time with so many people again.
