People who live in Sydney say that their town is like a ghost town. What with all the barracades up for the APEC security. I can't blame them but if anything happened to Bush while he was here the USA wouldn't forgive us.

We have a daughter who lives there and works in the main CBD. She has a special pass that she has been given and has to go through a security point every time she enters. Her hubby has to drive 5 klms out of his way to get to his workplace, rather than walking through the area like he normally does.
