mushroom steak

We had dinner at the Donnybrook pub. Though the pub has a more Irish name, the food had more of an American source. Large servings, being really too much to eat. For $20 I got the Mushroom Steak.

I thought this before I came here, I still think it: The best thing to do in Sydney is to hop on a ferry. Not the manly one, not the tarronga zoo one, not the parramatta one, but one of the inner harbour ferries. The ones with open decks. travel around, walk around the very . . . → Read More: ferries

celebrity lookalikes

Well, except for the first one, I only vaguely recognize some of the others. LOL But – Peter Sellers and KD Lang.
