Paddington Markets

Today we took a trip down to the Paddington Markets, located on the outskirts of Sydney. The markets have an endless amount of open-air tents that sell everything from aboriginal art to the best chocolate coffee beans you’ll ever taste.

The markets had a great vibe – even when we showed absolutely no intention of buying something, the sellers showed a genuine interest in our semester abroad.

At one point I walked into a store and had a long conversation with a woman trying to sell me a ukelele. We exchanged pleasantries, and when I told her I lived in Coogee, her eyes lit up. “Oh, you’re in luck. There’s a ukelele club that is pretty close by. They meet once a month.”

Here’s a picture of me trying to play said ukelele:
