Bulima suburbia

Bulima is the second last Citicat stop (before Thomson's Ferry) on the Brisbane River's way to the sea. I got off for a bit of a stroll before going on to the terminus and, ultimately, by taxi to the airport. This is a fairly typical house for the area.
This is the streetscape. The taxi driver reckoned that each block + house here goes for closer to two million dollars than one. I find that ridiculous, but that's what happens when you have a city growing at over a thousand people a week. You could by four of our old California Street homes in Adelaide for that price, a quarter of the distance to the respective city centre. I know which I'd prefer.
