I made it to Melbourne! Wierd to think I'm on totally the opposite side of the globe. I now see what people mean about Melbourne being much like an English city. I feel very at home here and not very far away at all. I'm staying at a very happening hostel in St Kilda, with some great roommates and a bar just downstairs, where I have spent pretty much every evening so far. The only exception being Saturday night, when Nina and I went to her friend Jani's prison themed 25th birthday party. Prison themed because 25 years is a life sentence here. We all wore some very sexy orange overalls.
Sunday was a lazy day spent watching aussie rules football on TV and various aussie comedy sketch shows. Gotta get to know the Australian culture!
Having got to know the St Kilda area on Saturday (it is right by the beach with lots of quirky shops and cafes - i like!), on Monday I had a mooch about the city centre. I walked all the way to the city from St Kilda, which took over an hour, but invloved a lovely wander through Albert Park and
then alongside the river Yarra. In the city I saw some of the main sights: Eureka tower, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, Rialto towers, etc.
Nina quit her job here yesterday - it was a rubbish marketing job, so she is now free to explore with me a bit more. But first she needs to get another job lined up, so we're going to hand around CVs today. I wasnt planning to get a job yet, but if I can earn a few pennies now it wouldn't hurt, so I'm going to join the job hunt.
