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
“Tostadetas de Pollo” = Chargrilled chicken, Avocado, Queso Fresco & Chipotle Mayo… Man they were good.
My very first Ceviche, “Ceviche Yucatan”= King fish, green tomato, chili, mint, lime & coconut milk!
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.
