I’m not the only American visiting this weekend in the Dan house! In the spirit of tourism, we headed down to Victoria Markets in Melbourne Sunday morning. A historical marketplace, Queen Victoria Market (or “Vic Market” or “Queen Vic” as it’s called by locals) has evolved into a tourist must see. It’s 2 blocks of what I would call a “swap meet” – stalls of goods including clothes, wigs, shoes, food, tea, books and souvenirs to mention a few. On the outside of the actual market place there’s also a few coffee/espresso stalls and a delicious smelling waffle stall that I had to walk by a few times just for sniffing purposes. If you want to read more about it here’s a link to the official website.
I was just hanging with the boys and expecting to browse but I ended up buy a few things anyway, including, to my own horror a boomerang – but come on, I’m an American. That shits just cool.
Later I got to attend a free guided meditation session and then meet up with the men for a fabulous dinner at DiMattina’s in Carlton. I had been craving a greek salad and I got just that. The Shiraz went down really nicely. I should have taken not of what kind of Shiraz, but alas, it was ordered and consumed before the thought crossed my mind.
All in all a perfect Sunday.
