Kit the commuter gets cultured

Went to see Reuben Guthrie at Belvoir last night with Anna, Guy and Lachlan. Funny in parts, but also depressing comments about the isolation of modern humans. During the post theatre discussion, Anna said that she wanted to have a notebook in which she would ask a person to draw their impression of a map of Sydney. For her, the north shore would be marked "here be dragons". I am embarrassed to say that the first thing that popped into my mind was: motorways. The second was: public transport routes. What would yours be?

Good question Kit.

I would have a large section coloured as "lower socioeconomic status and educational level".

If I felt sufficiently artistic, I could draw some pictures indicating how the road system and health system are buckling under the previous, continuing and current pressures of population growth.
