Computers are hard to come on this trip and also a price of a pint of beer.... with the lack of writing you can see where my priorities have been. Melbourne is a city that I didi not give myself enought time to explore. Lots of little pubs, live music and a very diverse crowd. After the Lawyer incident, I sepet the next day touring the Great Ocean road with 6 or more Candaina girls taking their Masters in Education on the Gold coast. It was a really long day but a great view. I will have to tell you about it beacuse at the second stop of the day, my camera battery died..... rockey mistake!!! It was a beautifull day of sightseeing. mt favorite was the 12 apostles which are these massive rock formations in the middle of the ocean and also the lovers cove where this ship crashed and these two strangers right off the "notebook" met. The attraction lifted my spirts that true love can come out the most unusuall places........ Sound good.... WRONG.. ......The bloke had no game and let her marry the neighbour. Yes, that sound more like something that would happen to me but he would marry the neighbour. Oh right that has happened to me.... Two bad the sailor could not date both of them at the same time and then that would be a page out of my life!!!! Anyway moving on.
The next day I explored Melbourne on my own. Took the local tram and looked at the architecture. Ended up at Union station and they had a live band. Toured the Melbourne Racing horse museium. It was neat and I learnt alot abou the history of racing. Toured the city's Aquarium and looked at sharks and sting rays. Since I am not planning on diving here, this would be the closest I would see the ocean creatures.
Spent the evening at the victoria market walking aorund with a cool stubby in hand. Lots of live music, great food and locals pedling their wares. Decided that I would sepnd my last night in a pub listening to Corb Lund as he was also in town. Went down to the local tram to get across town (I was being cheap). Got frustrated when It never came and picked me up because that station did not run past 9:00 am. Great! Biggest piss off since I got here is people working at these hostels giving me advice about how to get to place and do not even know what is down the street. Do not give me free advice of you have no FUCKEN clue.... dump ass!
Anyway, grabbed a cab and gave him the name of the bar and the address...... he was from India... You think that they woudl Know about taxi driving because no matter what country I have been in they are taxi drives. ..... I am sure it is a braggin point at the gas staion if you are a 3rd generation taxi driver. Well this guy was clueless. he drove me around in circles looking at his map constantly. the kicker was that he kept the meter running....... Let me skipp to the end. I never did get to the bar, I was ignorant as hell with him because he thought That I should pay the whole fare.... Get Bent! Last night in Melbourne I went to bed sober and pissed off. Time to get out of the city.
Tommoro I get on the OZ experience bus and make my way to the Snowy Mountains. Look out mountain men Moma's coming.
