outdated transportation; ice rink
Sometimes when people live in advanced country/city, people forgot how advanced the technology is available to those lucky ones, instead they are good at complaining the technology is not good enough.
Remember the horse-powered transportation in Sydney I mentioned last year (photo above)? I took some photos today showing different kind of outdated (Don's beautiful Boston standard) technology we are using here in Sydney. The Sydney taxi, not even horse-powered, but man-powered:
That's right, not clean and comfy cars in beautiful Boston!
Photos (both last year's and today's) were real. It is without a doubt that Sydney is nowhere as advancing as beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy. What more do I need to say?
So what was happening in Sydney? Our laughable (again, laughable is in Boston's standard) Winter Festival, featuring ice rink.
The ice rink was without a doubt, not a nature one, but with refrigerators underneath to keep the man-made ice cool. It is clearly not easily available here in Sydney, not even Sydney's winter.
Everybody there playing the ice skating on ice rink were pretty excited. It is without a doubt everybody loves cool weather and beautiful snows! And Don has been complaining having too much beautiful snow, which is clearly beyond our imagination!
Only wish I lived in beautiful Boston with very advanced technology available. (to Don: Antony is poor.)
