Norton Street Italian Festa 2008
On the past Sunday (26th October), I went to Norton Street in Leichhardt for the Italian Festa. It was sort of interesting however it was not overly exciting in my opinion. The reason of that is simply being not enough activities when compared to sponsors or stall holders (those who sell food and goods). Or perhaps it was simply too hot to enjoy a day out in Norton Street.
I did not bring my cameras, only managed to take some quick photos with my iPhone 3G (protected in invisibleSHIELD if you must know). Unfortunately, like many other mobile phones, iPhone's built-in camera is not designed to replace digital cameras.
I think I shall cut the crap, photos follow...
Before showing you the photos, I must point out that food stalls were charging outrageous prices. A slice of watermelon for A$2.00! Two dollars for just one slice!? Italians must be rich. Anyhow, that slice of watermelon was only a quarter cut of the watermelon and about 1.5cm thick (about 0.5 inches in US unit). However, the Aussie dollar has been dropped to 5-year low since the US financial crisis, it might be balanced out. A can of soft drink was A$3.00, and a seafood platter cost A$15.00, and it was quite small actually.
And I kept walking down and into the park (can't remember the name of the park, sorry), there was a Nintendo stall. (Sorry Don, no Microsoft Xbox stalls.) Although it was only a small stall, kids were happy there.
Again sorry for the poor quality, I shall really carry the Samsung L730 compact digital camera out with me next time.
