Melbourne (2)

Tonights concert was at Caroline's house and today she had offered to give me a tour of the city. We started out at the Queen Victoria market which is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere at a whopping 17 acres.

The centre of Melbourne is built on a grid sustem because it's the only capital city in Australia not founded on a convict colony, it was planned. We wandered South towards the river, passing allyways including Hosiery Lane, most famous for it's urban art.

While Caroline headed back home to get ready for the concert, I headed up the Eureka Skydeck to see the amazing views of Melbourne. I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to skylines.


The concert tonight was going to be in the garden and by the time I got back, it was transformed. 'The Venue' (as it is now affectionately called) looked incredible. It was a fairly small garden but the large gates at the back had been swung open and there stood a marquee filled with food and wine. Caroline had hung lanterns and put up fairy lights and once the sun had gone down there was really something magical about it all. Sometimes, it's hard to put it all into words.
