And so ends my first week in Sydney

Didn't enjoy it much. The commute from Richmond to Seven Hills takes 50 minutes at <40kph on most days. The distance is less than Dubbo to Wellington but takes longer. I use a back road that takes me through Vinyard, Riverstone, Schofields, Quakers Hill, and Marayong; minor suburbs that are more like small villages surrounded by the city.

Traffic, Crowds, Pollution, high rent, higher cost of living. All the things I missed about Sydney that makes me really want to move back.
