It did make the time – off hard, and got me thinking about my standards of normality and if that was all I’d known, then to see a half empty sydney bus (esp the ones that don’t move until people are seated) would do my head in.

Or complaining about the momentarily cold weather then going home to sit in front of the heater, where people don’t even have a home to go to. Western perspectives are so distorted sometimes.
