my animal kingdom

So far I have seen; opossums, wild koalas, freakishly large bats, wild kangaroos or wallabies, farm emus, a (dead) hedgehog, and all sorts of parrot birds; like kakaduus. And unfortunately some big ass rats...

victoria market

Melbourne has a lot to offer, and Victoria Market is no exception. Here you can get your meat, fish, cheese, delicatessens, cheap souvenir stuff, clothes, food, and what not... But the Victoria Night Market is at its best from 7pm. Concerts, loads of people, cheap drinks and food. And you just sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere, until you move on to a bar. Well, then you never know where you'll end up...(erhm McDonalds...)

do it like they do it in Fitzroy

Fitzroy is a part of Melbourne, and I'm seriously considering moving there! I love it! Lots of small bars, cafes, nice little shops... And everything is trashy in the coolest way! And a lot of live bands too!
It is dangerous to have a return ticket that is refundable and changeable...

life in Melbourne

A week has gone by here. I feel like I see more of the city every day, and I like what I see. Melbourne is awesome! I would definitely like to live here.
Here are some facts and odd habits I've learnt about Australia (Melbourne);
- "hey you going" is an odd greeting.
- a lot of Asian people here... Meaning very cheap Asian food.
- Fitzroy rules.
- goon is disgusting, but cheap.
- people are open and very fashion fabulous here.
- I am learning to distinguish between Australian and kiwi.
- a beer costs in averadge 12$ aus!!!!! = 9,2€. It is VERY expensive here!!

Some pics to set the mood.
