  Sydney Water Front
by JohnniOmani

Sydney gets a bad rap from the press due to unemployment and the notorious tar ponds but for most visitors it is place full of warm people and a great local culture. Sydney has great parks, restaurants, boardwalk and friendly locals. It is a closely knit community and as a visitor it wont take long before you notice or experience the warmth of the local people. A walk along the recently expanded boarwalk will be a stroll that will be remembered by people saying hello and how are you down the entire length of the pier. Despite suffering hard economic times, Sydney has regained its charm and grows on visitors. The pier has been restored and a lot of Cruise boats from the US are now heading into the city making Sydney a city about to expand. I love my home and I cant wait to visit in the fall.
