I had lunch in Parramatta today in a Thai place on church street. I have not been there since I moved. This was not deliberate. It was just that I was busy doing other things. Karyn had a friend who was having a birthday lunch there. I was happy to be back in Parramatta. I know the place, the layout, the people. I felt the most relaxed that I have in some time walking the nearly deserted wide streets on a Sunday morning. The camping shop I used to go to has gone, some of the other shops have changed, JB hi-fi moved, office works is now aldi, I was quite surprised by the turnover. But things seemed to be doing ok. The food was good. We went to Thai in a box As always I now start in a new place with the larb. It is my test of their food. The larb was good. I asked for it spicy. I’d give it 3.5 stars.
On the way there i made this video of the track work heading from Sydenham station into town.
