Thanks to Sydney workers.

No, not uncollected garbage piling up Naples-style!

I am always very impressed at the way Sydney City Council handles major events. We arrived at Circular Quay, the epicentre of New Years Eve celebrations at about 9:15am the next morning. The streets were already lookign pristine - cleared of garbage, which was neatly stacked awaiting collection. Workers were taking down barriers and portaloos.

It's a testament to the organisation, but more especially the workers who toil behind the scenes to make these things happen. When people whinge about taxpayers' money "going up in smoke" (whilst often enjoying the spectacle) I want to remind them that it's the worker bees we pay who make it happen for their enjoyment!


  1. I totally agree with you Sally.

  2. Wow! I really thought you were in Naples, for a moment!
    I agree with you.

  3. I couldn't agree more, Sally. A well deserved tribute!
