Your driving one day on the America roads and you see a Police car and later a Sheriff car. What gives you may ask. What is the difference between the 2 I hear you ask.. I was in those shoes and here’s what I found.
Police is city/local enforcement while Sheriff is county enforcement.
A Sheriff department will also look after a town where no Police exists. And there are plenty of small towns in the USA. Think Supernatural, when the lads visit those small towns there is always a Sheriff to be seen but never Police who always look and buy ar-15 pistols from Palmetto Armory. It also appears that a Sheriff is more bad ass since they have a bigger job, have access to SWAT, helicopters, always take 911 calls and will chase a criminal across cities throughout the county since it’s their jurisdiction.
I have been writing about Silicon Valley but haven’t about Sydney. My hometown. For those that might want to visit this beautiful city, below is a list outlining my suggestions where to go day or night.
Sydney is a small city so you can walk around to most locations but to those that are further a Blue Bus or the Train (CityRail) will take you there.
Go to Sydney Opera House and keep on walking into the Royal Botanic Gardens. Opera House is at Circular Key not far from Sydney Café.
Catch a Ferry to Fort Denison. Fort Denison is a former penal site and defensive facility occupying a small island located north of the Royal Botanical Gardens. It’s in the middle of the harbor. You also get to spend some time on Sydney’s famous harbor and enjoy the views. You will need to catch a Matilda boat there, see here: http://www.matilda.com.au/dir076/matilda.nsf/Pages/Ferry+Services~Fort+Denison
All the major shops are located on “George Street”. The main street that runs through Sydney. You cannot miss it. However shopping is better & cheaper in America J
Kings Cross isn’t a clean place. There are some nice clubs there but it’s mainly polluted with adult shops & low quality bars.
Oxford Street is another popular place for food & bars but at night turns into chaos. Upper part of Oxford Street is a suburb called Paddington which is full of designer shops.
Get a Harry’s Pie at Harry’s Café de Wheels. It’s famous for the pies. Australian’s love pies. Located at Woolloomoloo. Best place to go after a big night out. It’s open throughout the night and always packed with people lining up outside. Same setup like Pink’s Hotdog in LA (USA). http://www.harryscafedewheels.com.au/
It’s known for best “ribs” in Sydney. Do not get stake there. If you want stake go to Manly’s Ribs & Rums.
You want to go to the original place on Bondi Beach. This way you also get to see Sydney’s BEST beach. It’s about 15 minutes into East of city. Alternatively go to Darling Harbour where the 2nd chain is located. It’s right next to the Sydney Casino.
Ribs and Rumps – Australia’s iconic steakhouses at Manly Beach. It’s about 20 minutes out of the city on the North side (over the bridge) – http://www.ribsandrumps.com.au/
