Queens birthday means no class, however the current downpour in Australia really put a damper on the day. To avoid the rain as much as possible we took a trip to the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It was a really good museum. If anyone is ever out in Sydney, I would definitely recommend. It’s free and you can easily spend a good portion of the day wandering around and getting lost in the beautiful artworks. Being the museum of New South Wales, a lot of the art works had a nice Australian twist, which was new for me to see. There was even a few paintings by Van Gogh and Monet. Not their best work, but it’s still the work of a few of history’s most well renowned artists.
While in the museum the Asians, Joyce, Claire and I, began to crave Korean BBQ. Despite the terrible weather, we trekked on over to Pitt Street (the Koreatown of Sydney) to satisfy our hunger for lunch. Walking in the pouring rain was all worth it. Getting some bulgogi and kalbi was exactly what I needed. It was my roommate Andrea and our friend Shane’s first time and they seemed to really enjoy the food. I always have some weird delight when I get the opportunity to introduce Korean food to non-Korean friends. And good food and good company always makes my day.
