Lost in Sydney, couldn't tell which way to go. Everything looked strange and different. Anxiety levels were rising, heart pounding. To seek refuge I stepped into this arcade, instantly i was taken into another world. I walked into what seemed a haven, my anxiety turned to curiosity; just like Alice I felt as though I had fallen into a magical place. The ornate building with its puzzling tiles, its magical dimly lit lights gave me an ethereal feel leaving me curious and inspired to further explore all it had to offer... a world of wonder and beauty. I did not at all mind being Strand-ed.
