The subway provides not only transportation for us, but entertainment. We've heard a variety show's worth of Motown, Mariachi, Chinese, classic, and other music styles.
We're used to the airline restrictions about carry-ons and luggage. Apparently those rules don't apply down under. If you can carry it, you can ride with it. Here are a few things we've seen.
Going to a potluck? Bring your casserole and come on.
Wear your swimsuit, bring a towel and don't forget the lawn chair.
Subway doesn't take you all the way to your destination? No problem. Bikes allowed. Skateboards and scooters, too.
Member of a band or orchestra? Instruments welcome. The bigger the better.
Don't want to pay shipping and handling for that new flat screen tv? Bring it on.
Time to renew our metro cards. Our month-long pass expires tomorrow. See you down under. I'll carry the groceries.
