Paddington Sydney Bear Episode with Two Literary Nonsense Poems

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We thought about posting more of Marc Latham’s thoughts today, but decided that a light-hearted episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps would be more appropriate for the start of the weekend.

What Bear in Paddington?

This episode sees the quintessential quartet travel farther into Sydney, where they meet a Peruvian bear in Paddington after leaving Bronte behind.

It is most definitely more comedy than travel quest epic, but probably can’t be considered a classic. It does also contain two little literary nonsense poems. Can you guess who the ambling Andean is?

I wondered if a book of Grey was a sign, and quickly flicked through it. Although it was certainly not literary nonsense, it did not seem to have much relevance to my life or journey. So I didn’t investigate further, and donated it to the Bronte library Bronte section.

Whatever will be, will be,
and if Agnes Grey re-enters my story,
I will return to the Bronte area library,
and look it up under section Bronte.

Paddington Bear Gives us a Scare

We walked up through Bondi at quite a pace,
and were resting five minutes in Paddington place,
when a colourful bear entered the street
marching purposely in wellington-booted feet.

He looked harmless, dressed in an old coat and hat, and carrying a big suitcase, but you never know! He came right up to us and asked if this was the right direction for Peru.

Funnily enough, I’d seen a boat departing to Peru in a day or two on Bondi Beach, so I told the Paddington Bear.

He thanked me, and gave us a marmalade sandwich each before saying adios.
