Village Bizzare in Sydney

Yea so I arrived in Sydney weeks ago and have been exploring quite a bit of the city now. I'll have to admit that I haven't fallen completely in love with it here yet, but I hope that comes when I've settled a bit more properly in.
There are some gems around the city though which are brilliant! I went on a free walking tour with a Brit I met on one of my first days, and the tour guide was telling us how she loved this part of the city called The Rocks. And luckily there was supposed to be this really cool market - so naturally that's where I took my friend from back home the next Friday.

We didn't really know what to expect, but loved every second of the stalls, the huge inflatable rabbits, the fire dancers, the burlesque dancers, the silver man dancing to 80s pop music, the mermaid interviewing people about their love for weeds, and all of the colourfully dressed people roaming around the market. There were performances everywhere - people where dancing behind shop windows and other people were performing on the harbour in front of an up lit opera house.

Also you could have your future read by a mysterious lady with tarot card. It was kind of fun even though she didn't get much more specific than 'you'll find a job soon' and 'you'll meet a fun and spontaneous guy in a big group of people'. Also she promised me that I'd have a positive and calm mind for the next long while. Really, she didn't say anything negative so according to her life's going to be good right now.

I've got my fingers crossed that we'll come across more cool places like this because I had such a good time, and it's really stuff like this that makes a city interesting!
