Today I want to introduce about one of my favorite city, Sydney. Sydney is one of the biggest city in Australia. But Australia’s capital city is Canberra not Sydney. It was hard to decide which city to be Capital as both Sydney and Melborune is almost same size of the city. The government determined Canberra for the capital city because Canberra is located between Melborune and Sydney.
Anyway, I love Sydney.
One of the reason I love Sydney is they have the friendly environment for hula-hooping. A lot of times weather in Australia is good. The sky is so blue without any cloud. Especially, Sydney has a good weather compared other city. They have a lot of park in the city so that I can easily exercise or do the training. Also, it seems like people consider and respect Entertainer as an Artist. In Australia they have a good environment for hula-hooping and I have such a great time here. Entertainer can have a good life style of work both living and work.
Other good reason about Australia is people are very easy going and friendly. When I carried hula-hoop and walk around, people come to talk to me. Some people just asked to me and said “ What is it? “ or wiggled their whip and said “ Hula Hoop♪” If I carried hula-hoops in Japan, it is a bit annoying for other people.
Also, Australian is Japanese friendly. I stayed at States for 5 and half years. People often said "Nihao" to me (Nihao means hello in Chinese) . In the States, they considered Asian is Chinese. ( Of course it depends on where you live. ) However, in Sydney people said Konnichiwa which means hello in Japanese.
Another reason I love Sydney is… there are many special architecture. One of my favorite place in Sydney is Circular Quey. Circular Quey is one of the sightseeing place but local people can enjoy there as well. When I look at Opera House or Circular Quey, I recognize I am in Sydney and I am in Australia. I love walking Harbour Bridge from Rocks to North side of Sydney. I enjoy watching tiny model of Sydney at the custom’s house at Circular Quey. I look for where I used to live, where I used to work, where I know from the model. It is fun. I have more and more favorite place in Sydney and I can’t stop talking with this!!! I sometimes heard Sydney is nothing to do and so boring from some sightseers or working holiday friends. No!!!! Sydney is the beautiful place to have such a lovely people, city and environment. I traveled over 30 countries so far but Sydney is one of my favorite cities so far. I love where I live and I am happy to be here. If you think where you want to travel next? Please consider Sydney and travel to Sydney!!!
