“Home is where the heart is.
Home is so remote.
Home is just emotion
sticking in my throat.
Let’s go to your place.”
The decor of this Sydney restaurant is a colourful reminder of the linguistically and culturally rich country that was my home from birth to mid-life.
My favourite from this week’s challenge was this one from Jo Bryant.
See The Daily Post for more photographic interpretations of ‘Home’.
so colourful! you are welcome at my place …. but home is roots too, some sort of land connection … are you unrooted?
Thanks, Christine – I will definitely pop down for a visit sometime 🙂 No, I’m not unrooted – just have roots in two continents 🙂
i think i can understand … i have roots in the country where i lived with my grandparents … yet i know there are sydney roots too, although more tenuous … and here? i feel this land is hosting me, i am a carer for it … to share it’s healing properties … can’t explain it …
I need a Glossary to define the words on the wallpaper. 😉
Hehe – yes. South Africa has 11 official languages, and who knows how many unofficial 🙂
Amazing that this colourfully graphic display of things Sarf Efrikin appears in Sydney!
Ja, Col 🙂
Really cool! Great interpretation BB! 🙂
Thanks, Sued 🙂
Very colorful and diverse.
That’s why they call it the Rainbow Nation, Charles 🙂

In your case, mad is good 😉

Love the felt slippers!
Very retro newspaper wallpaper, GFB 🙂 And this is just in the toilet 🙂
My type of toilet!
This really looks like a fun place to eat. 🙂
Soooo noisy, AD 🙂
Lovin’ that colour (and the Lene Lovich lyric – haha) 😉 Must be hard being so far away from where you grew up.
Many will recognise the teenage sentiments in those lyrics, haha. Love Lene Lovich’s music.
Hard and not so, Gabe – I think it’s complicated for any emigrant, no matter where they come from or migrate to. We make our choices, I guess. And for many different reasons.
An exuberant display, BB!
The retro newspaper wallpaper keeps one occupied while on the restaurant loo 🙂
Oh, so home is in the bathroom? Why not?
Lovely, BB. I think sometimes one sees things much more clearly from afar. Sometimes one has to leave home to really appreciate it. Great photo’s! and great quote too.
The restaurant’s called ‘Lucky Tsotsi Shebeen & Bar’ – pity about the Sandton prices, LOL. Thanks, Adee.
Quite the vibrant space… i love it. 😉
Come on over – I’ll take you there 😀
