My flat was just off MacLeay Street, which is a trendy shopping area. I saw a dressy white t-shirt in a store window and popped in to look at it. The price tag was AU$119 (Australian dollars), which was $91.50 US dollars and way out of my budget. Just down the street I found a discount store and purchased a nice tank top for AU$10. My wallet and I were much happier with that choice, and I had a more comfortable top to wear on that hot day.
After changing into my new, comfy top, I explored the area near my flat, looking for things that were typically Australian.
