24 Sep 2016 Clan Jetties and street art

IMG_0393.JPGPeter makes a route to go to the Clan Jetties and then see the tons of street art nearby.
I spot The Camera Museum on the way. It is worth a look. So many different cameras that I used to have! We get in the back way via Over Exposed cafe and stop for a drink on the way out.
There are so many shops the Heritage area that have not changed in a long time. Hardware stores that Craig would love! Also plenty of temples. I find the artisan batik shop and am tempted to buy more than the one serong. Through Little India drawn by the aromas. Spot an old printers shop with an archaic press. Dimattina Coffee is served at the Black Kettle!
Many sculptures and street art in this area.
The Clan Jetties are still people’s homes for the families that originally owned them. They make the most of the tourists by having street stalls along the piers. Chew Jetty is the largest.
Stop for lunch at Chew Jetty Cafe. Not sure what I ate but it had a massive spoonful of chili in it! The owner gives us a map with the street art so we explore a bit more. Also find an artisan beaded shoemaker. Three months to make one pair!
Get a taxi back to the hotel as we are both exhausted. At the pool now. Great place to relax.
