I don’t do winter well. I’d take sweltering over cold any day — and the fact that the lowest Sydney winter temps are still significantly higher than the north-east America-land ones I grew up with matters little when I have to get out of bed each morning to an un-heated apartment.
Now Sydney has been gracing us with well above average late-autumn temps this year, but even so we are looking straight into three months of cold before things begin to look up again.
It’s about this time each year I start to twitch and book tickets into the North American summer, but as that trip has already been booked I’ll simply share some colour and warmth from our adventure last year. Welcome to mid-September in NYC.
