Melbourne in parts - part 2, a post dedicated to buildings...warning picture heavy!!



We spent a day in the city...which to a small town girl like me is pretty novel ... although I so wouldn't do a permanent swap; it was cool to hang out and see the trams, world renowned buildings and event centres...the architecture is inspiring, beautiful textures and details to be found everywhere and food galore...we spent some time in a catherdral being refurbished so we could admire the details and hours of labour gone into intricate painting and moasicing and carving. (check out the wee door - and mosaics tiles...I so wanted that door)...then off for sushi by the Yarra River on the Southbank which has stuning chalk portraits on the side walk...

Phew!...off to the Aquarium now....

Happy traveling! Melbourne seems to have an almost european look to it (except for the teapots:)). Enjoy!
