I'm very impressed with the view from my new bedroom (pictured above). There is a nice belt of green streets and parks between me and the wall of city towers.
It's a very weird feeling moving to a new part of town. I keep feeling like I'm a tourist in a foreign land. There is a different set of people, unfamiliar sounds and I haven't a clue which restaurant is going to dish up the best food. My task now is to discover.
Last night I left the building and walked the streets in search of food. They were buzzing with neon lights and people. I came to one of the many Thai restaurants. Pad Thai is the dish I judge a Thai restaurant by. I grabbed take-away and headed back up to the roof of my new apartment block. I can see me enjoying beers up here on sunny afternoons. *Mental note, I need a new esky.
This was a good move. I smile and feel VERY happy with my decision - except for my choice for dinner. Not great, was like noodles, chicken and tomato sauce. But that too is a good thing... I now can continue the local search for the restaurant that makes a good Pad Thai.
