Melbourne by day
So I just finished a week in Melbourne. Southern part of Australia. Winter time now so it is a bit chilly. You could run around wearing shorts and thongs (flip-flops) but it's just a bit too cold. Second biggest city in Australia with just under 4 million people. The Yarra river runs through town. Since they have hosted the Olympics ('56) and Commonwealth games ('06) the city has a number of sports venues. Probably the thing I will remember most is the wide variety of food. Each night we had something different (Italian, Greek, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese).
