Northbridge - From Chinatown To Yankeetown

After visiting the Japanese art on display at Central TAFE last night we walked around Northbridge and had some icecreams. Northbridge would normally be known as Chinatown but last night it was Yankeetown. There must be an American warship docked in Freo as Northbridge was crawling with 18-25 year old Americans with short haircuts and daggy civvies. Their terrible dress sense was on display for all to see. I even had to ask them to move out of the way so that we could get past on the footpath.

I guess that the local hookers did a roaring trade last night as it wasn't unusual to see 8-10 guys chatting up a couple of girls. The local sluts would have done well for themselves last night also. Northbridge was a pretty busy place. It'll all die down in a few days I expect. Wonder what Fremantle was like. Bit of a culture shock to be surrounded with American accents with no television on.
