Says she, “I’m so impressed how Sydney has incorporated the old with the new and created lovely promenades and public spaces all over the city centre.”
By way of example, she sends photos of Foundation Park …

You can blame me for the next shots. I asked to see something of everyday life.
So I see that public transit is clean and modern, but that accessibility problems have been designed in, just as with our Toronto buses. Who chose the blue and yellow spatter barf motif for the seats?
Sydney is ahead of Toronto in use of electronic cards for fares and Danica loves their system for that. Also, she mentions “Tons of construction, including the adding of rail tracks to one of the major streets – yes they will be adding street cars!”
