Melbourne-CBD

Melbourne, Central Business District

The bit of torquoise against the sky is a swimming pool. None of us wanted to take a swim for the picture.

Wonderful ten days in Melbourne. Saw lots of flying foxes, but neither venomous spiders nor tiger snakes.

If I was pressed for a sound byte comparing Australia with New Zealand, I’d say Australia plays the Benighted States to New Zealand’s Canada: brasher, more full of itself, more self-confidence.
