    First of all, the dorm's bathroom was extremely dirty. The glass that covered the right side of the shower had a substantial amount of mold on it. In addition, the floor was constantly soaking wet since the shared bathroom had an open shower. The dorm...More

    Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The
    Cross," Sydney's red light district. These
    new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and
    boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well
    as organic markets on Saturdays. The
    area's nightclubs are still popular with
    youngsters, however, who will dance to the
    early morning hours on weekend nights.
