30 Days in Sydney
By Walker Cain
"Of course they were not offended by this style of greeting" this shows that even in developed countries like the USA and Australia, there are still many differences in the norms and greetings that the two countries have (Carey 7).
"700,000 aboriginals living off this country when white people first arrived. Today there are 400,000 (in a population of 18 million)" this statistic is sad because the people first came to colonize Australia, they did not care about the natives or their way of life at all. And now the amount of natives in the population is a small fraction (Carey 51).
A small example is that in America we would say a horn honked, in Australia they would say "a horn hooted" which might sound weird to our ears (Carey 14).
"I saw the opera house and the harbor bridge" thees two structures are probably the most recognized pieces of Sydney, but Australia.
