Today Greeter Mel shares her latest report,
"On Wednesday 9th January, I met with Linh from Washington DC to explore Newtown. We looked at some of the fabulous street art before wandering up King Street, taking in all the art, culture and excitement that is Newtown. We were lucky enough to see the artist 'Ears' (we think, by the style) throwing up a new piece on Goddard Street. We popped into Young Henry's brewery for a beer, and then some amazing dumplings at Chinese Dumpling Master. We walked through Camperdown Memorial Park, and the cemetery, where we told tales of the afterlife, and Linh got up close and personal with the beautiful Moreton Bay Fig tree. We saw two kookaburras in a tree, and while they made some noise, they sadly didn't launch into full laughter. After some more street art, we came upon Elizabeth's Bookshop, where Linh decided she needed a blind date with a book! We enjoyed smelling the native flowers outside a market, the I have a Dream Mural and the interesting and strange sculptures in the window at the back of Thai Pothong. A lovely waiter there beckoned us inside and happily, took some photos of us posing in front of them. I then left Linh to hop on a train back to Kings Cross where she was meeting up with a friend. It was a really nice afternoon/evening and had a great time showing Linh Newtown" #SydneyGreeters The Global Greeter Network
