Met up with Sarah in Federation Square & got free goodie bags from the heart association - a water bottle & fruit, awesome. Oh yeah & on the walk there we got free canvas bags from myspace reps which are actually quite nice & handy. Gotta love free!!
We all walked down to a park, where we saw the house Captain Cook was born in (yes, way back when, someone actually transported it from England), some cute fuzzy baby ducks, a gorgeous greenhouse (Amy's pictured using the leaves as a wig), and a tree with fairies carved into it (pictured).
Then we went on a river cruise which was absolute rubbish. Melbournes not quite as pretty as Sydney from the water anyway, but this cruise took us out to the docks - there was nothing to see but some wharfs & tankers! Dissapointing.
Then up to Eureka Tower for an arial view of the city. It was ok; I'm glad it didn't cost more.
Then we split up from Sarah & caught the tram back but I guess we got on the wrong one bc we had to walk quite a ways still. Rosie went back to the hostel; Amy & I tried the shops but they were closed & then I was on my own for dinner. Took sushi back to the hostel where I ran into Rosie again & met some nice German girls.
I'm not a fan of this hostel. Its huge, everyones really young & not very friendly, its loud as hell bc there's a bar beneath us, and our roommates are smelly boys who spend all day inside on their computers. I would switch but I really like the girls I'm staying with. Ah well, its an experience. :)
Did laundry & waited for it in the common room watching American TV - friends, mad about you & king of queens - seems aussies watch a lot of our stuff.
Not much of a day, but I was in good company & that's what made it nice.
Today I'm so happy & grateful for:
