quicko: 6 pm curfew

I really can't believe how ridiculous it is, but everything closes at 6 pm on Saturdays in Sydney. Like everything. You could maybe find a pizza or a McDonald's if you're about to die of starvation, but all the other shops are closed up and vacant by right about 6:03. It's eerie, walking through major shopping areas and realizing that there is absolutely nothing you can buy. It's so bizarre -- the biggest city in Australia (a first world country, isn't it?!) and it's dead at 6 pm!! You're literally not able to spend any money. Hope your pockets are hole resistant.
