So, I go to Australia for my holiday. I finally get out of Cornwall (used to live in Millwall so it's an improvement to me) for my first holiday in years.
I chose Australia cause I dont like leaving my comfort zone too much and I thought Australia was just like a bigger, less crowded England with more stuff.
But I get there and the first thing happens when I leave the airport is an olf chinese man sneezes on me as he walks past. I get a taxi, chinese driver, I get to my hotel and all the staff are some sort of chinese people.
I turn on the tele in my room and there's Indonesian and malaysian news on. I walk out of the hotel to find something to eat and the first shops I see are Chinese restaurant, Korean bbq, Japanese sushi bar, Thai massage place. No chip shop.
So I take a moment to look around and everyone is Asian. Even some of the signage is Asian and the cars are also Asian. There are very few european cars. You lool around and you see toyota, hyundai, nissan, kia, mitsubishi, daihatsu I didn't even know they still made them, isuzu, suzuki.
Whats going on? I need an explanation for this. Am I just in the wrong part? Whats going on. I went to Sydney by the way.

Well, Australia is not a part of Europe, it's a part of Asia (Oceania to be exact). I don't know what you were expecting but it was clearly a little silly to think Australia is just a larger version of England. If you want to have less crowded version of England, just go to Ireland or Scotland or Iceland or Germany. They're all pretty similar to England.
I would love the diversity, I'd go and eat in an Asian restaurant every day :-).1
