Corner View – Exotic

October 26th, 2011 by Eliza

Corner View is a weekly appointment – each Wednesday – created by Jane and currently curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you’d like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at, and be sure to visit other participants too. This week’s Corner View is ‘Exotic’.

I struggled a bit with this theme . . . I have not had very many ‘exotic’ experiences lately! But then I suddenly remembered – in March of this year I went to Sydney (Australia) with one of my best buddies to see my very favourite opera singer Cecilia Bartoli. We went to both of her concerts at the Sydney Opera House and the whole experience was – to a small-town girl like me – thoroughly exotic. The first picture is of me standing on the steps of the opera house – made all the more exotic by the rainbow which conveniently made an appearance as my friend snapped the picture. The second picture is the bollard advertising what was on at the Opera House at the time – including, of course, Cecilia Bartoli. Exotic!
