Our Aussie Adventures
Last night we officially began our guided tour with a lovely dinner with the 44 people on our tour. This morning we went on a wonderful bus tour all over Melbourne. Stopped at some great places and took some nice pics. In an hour we leave by bus to drive 75 km to Phillip Island to see the Fairy Penguins at sunset. I am attaching some pics I took yesterday — and hope you enjoy. (Driving to the Island — kind of like driving to Granville Island!)
We found this lovely cafe while on the circle tour yesterday by tram — Le Cirque. Wonderful coffee and great muffins! Note the piano player and a little girl “helping” him. He was so patient with her! This was around 2:30 in the afternoon. Wonderful way to relax for a bit before returning to our hotel.
I was very curious as to why there are so many young Asian people here. Sometimes the streets seem to be 75% Asian individuals. Bus driver told us today that they have 7 universities here and they cater heavily to foreign students. Some of the universities are close to downtown. Mystery solved. ONE bedroom apartment for rent in the downtown area — $660 per WEEK!! Ta ta for now!
