Sydney Day 4

Going further down, you get a wonderful bakery, a snazzy Northern Indian restaurant etc... its all fun stuff walking and and down the street on the beach.

Staying near the beach is very cool, you get to enjoy the life as beach bums. Wake up late or early, stumble down to the beach area for breakfast and read the papers, watch the pretty people go past. Whether its Coogee, Bronte, Bondi or Manly beaches, its the same drift. The shops are all a lot of fun and presents great variety.

Its only about 100 meters but its exciting kind of shops. Here you have a bottler (liquor retail store), a surf shop and SushiGOI, a popular sushi place much like Sakae Sushi.

Next to it you have a cafe, and another cafe and then the very fresh Coogee Fish shop, great fish and chips. I kinda counted that there were no less than 16 cafes in that 100 meters.

My morning comfort food in Sydney, bacon and crispy bacon roll.

Well, its not ever going to be a touristy type of travel blog since I have been here for a long time and lived and studied here for over 10 years. Hence you are not getting the Opera House, Taronga Zoo stuff. But the Harbour Bridge is very cool, this is a video of me driving over it. Visitors without any fear of heights should do the Harbour Bridge climb.

I do a lot of country side driving when I am in Sydney. You can fit the entire Europe map into Australia, its a huge place. The country side is a lot more soothing. Drove to Gosford, another hour's drive from Sydney. Relaxing and wonderful weather to boot. Yes, they happened to be having races there yesterday, up close and personal with the horsies as well.

The very relaxing drive down to Gosford ...

I wouldn't mind betting ten bucks on all the horses,if there is always only four hourses in a race.One will surely come out a winner.Only thing is your purse will be lighter.But there is always a chance of a longshot winning,even in a field of ten or more horses.

Talking about horse racing next week is the best time to go punting.The dow down almost 1,200 pts from 5 yrs high,and 700 pts since the US presidential election.

There is no panic in the stockmarket.It looks more like a shakeout of weak longs.And the greenback is struggling to add meagre pips to its hard earned gains.

The markets looks like it is basing and trying to form a bottom.The FX markets is trying to tell us some thing.The markets are ripe for a rally next week.Scholastics in the daily charts of the hard beaten Euro is starting to turn up.Sometime early next week,possibly Monday or Tuesday there will be a bullish divergence in the Aussie,that is if it holds over 1.0325.

Midday Friday I have already gone long the indexes,Euro and Aussie.

There will be no such thing as the fiscal cliff.The politicians in DC,just like the Umnoputras are more concern about their pocket books than the people.And the only thing to keep their pockets heavy is not to get kicked out because of complacency.

The Israelis and the Palestinians will be fighting forever,as long as the Hamas are there.Shooting rockets into Israel is not good for the health of Israelis.It is time the Israeli leadership decide to do something about this thorn in the flesh,once and for all.
