... he was told: "You walk like an Australian!" The man was trying to get us into his establishment for lunch (maybe he’d guessed we were Australian from our clothes or backpacks? Or maybe it actually was our walk!). We ignored his forward comments, and subsequently got yelled at: “But you aren’t friends like Aussies!”
We went back to Sanat Galerisi gallery so Graham and Cameron could buy a few prints, then we walked up the sloping ...
