Melbourne, land of gourmet coffee and stark bright sunlight. It's so strange at how almost fluorescent it appears in the day time. I do love how it makes everything appear so stark though. Walking around looking for work, I can forget to really take in the city scape. I love seeing people in cafes having real conversations. Oh, and that's the thing about Australia, forget about accessible wifi it just does not exist here. There are some very few specific areas where you're able to get a strong signal other then that, it's like the great wide void. Devoid of email, instagram, google maps. Yikes! All that being said it was really lovely seeing these two enjoy each other's company.
I love seeing dogs wait outside for their person. They always have this fierce stare focused on the doorway awaiting their long lost beloved. My favorite part is then getting to see their owner walk towards them, what a nice reunion.
There are so many interesting neighborhoods through out the city. Some newer up-and-coming, while some show a unique character that only slight abandonment and creative expression can bring. This corner warehouse? is in the Windsor suburb in Melbourne, just a block away from the bustling Chapel Street. Where there are too many fantastic looking restaurants that will make your mouth water, while also feeling you're sitting in a really cool art gallery. The photo below? is a patio for a mexican restaurant! lo increible!
It can still be odd sometimes being in such a far away land and be able to read everything in english! How strange that a 20+ hour flight can bring you somewhere so familiar? Although, I do have to say that the british undertones are definitely noticeable here. Like all the kids wearing school uniforms, how every city is pretty much named after an english town/city, and an obsession with high tea rooms. Pretty funny place this land down under, that reminds me I think it's tea time.
