Melbourne

A recent article in the SMH reports that Melbourne has been judged the world’s most liveable city!

Now don’t get me wrong, I love Sydney & it’s surrounds, but I would have to say that they are right. There is a certain something about Melbourne. The people in Melbourne go to things, there’s no other way to put it. The average attendance at football games in Melbourne (AFL v NRL) is over double that of Sydney! There seems to be more theatre, more comedy, more bands, more sports.

The city also has an awesome vibe. Last week I went to Melbourne for the day to visit a conference at St Hillary’s, Kew. While I was there, along with visiting my little Bro & his family, I also managed to enjoy a great lunch at a Mexican place in the city, plus visit FOUR chocolate shops in a 1km radius of each other!
The city was abuzz with people. They want to eat, to drink, to chat, to spend time. It was tuesday, but it was still “happening.”

I wonder, does being in a culture when people go to things make it any easier to get people to visit a church? Or does it just mean there are more competing interests?

While you think about that, I’ll show you a couple of pics from “Mamasitas” and just so my Aunty Maurny is happy, some pics of the Kiddlywinks

Nice competition for Sushi for refreshing fish dish!

Possibly the most commont view of Gumnut at the moment. Alway climbing up onto his feet, always wanting to be a part of the action.
