On days of great national celebration, you are either a 'this' type of person, or a 'that' type of perso. A 'this' person, sorts through all the events on offer, chooses one thing to participate in, or go see. A 'that' type of person wanders around not wanting to miss out on anything, and hoping that something of note falls into their lap. I guess that is a criticism, right? I am a 'this'.
However, on Australia Day, a friend and I wandered around The Rocks to see what was on and what folk were doing. And we chanced upon something quite wonderful and very entertaining. In The Nurses Walk, just off Suez-Canal, deep in the heart of The Rocks, there was a niche put aside for a continuing ring of choirs to entertain the milling mass. The Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir was one such choir. It was great to see them flick the switch to vaudeville and really get the crowd onside.
