I know nothing about this place apart from my own unfounded prejudices.
I had always thought it evolved via sudden cash influx through it's own cultural perspective.
Like an Amish teenager suddenly given 20% of the worlds currency.
It's very civil and safe, I haven't been here 24 hours yet. It's hot, Perth hot. 100+ degrees daytime [and with first show 4pm-ish I'll have to remember to hydrate bigtime.
Socially there's old and new. I like me my old school peeps.
This mornings buffet had something labelled 'Foul Medamass' I passed but after the jetlags worn off I may try it tomorrow.
