This is a cool city. I could totally live here. As I told Colby, my impression is of a bustling downtown like NYC, but smaller and fresher, then outside of that it's like eternal South Congress (Austin) or brooklyn or something, then to the south side toward the ocean reminds me of these little southern cal beach towns.
And it's really not that expensive at all.
Tomorrow flying all the way Cairns for diving. I'm still sick. But it's getting better. First dive should be about 36 hours from now, hopefully sinuses are cleared and happy by then.
