Bonnie was new to couchsurfing, and I was her third guest. She worked in Sydney, and lived with Tom and Eliza in Newtown, a very close suburb to downtown Sydney. It's also right next to the University of Sydney, so it's got a college town feel to it. Supposedly it has one of the highest concentrations of Thai restaurants in the southern hemisphere, however despite the endless cheap lunch options ($4 for Thai – yum!), I wouldn't get to take advantage.
I arrived on Bonnie's doorstep and she made me feel right at home. It felt great to escape the hostels, especially as I was just about to come down with a cold which would put me out of commission for a few days.
Bonnie was also hosting a Japanese guy at the time I was there. He did musical street performances and could juggle. That's about all I can remember. Oh, and he makes a great pizza.
