A Writer Down Under

The journey to Melbourne was long, but made wonderful by a host of kind United flight attendants. I am picking up a lot of fodder for another novel in the series I have begun to write. Arrived here well rested, but managed to sleep 16 hours anyway!

I walked the town, the little alleyways filled with the aroma of small coffee shops and fresh breads. Eating your way through a city is wonderful! Melbourne is quite eclectic and very young. Fashions range from black grunge to high fashion, everyone looking and felling good in their own skins. The River runs in front of my hotel, as does the Flinders Street train station. On the weekdays, the streets bustle with people rushing to and fro. Rowers stroke the River in their racing sculls, barely moving the River, but leaving small ripples as they stroke along. Street musicians pound drums, dance and sing, making the air vibrant with sound.

Today was the first day of the month long Melbourne food and wine festival. I love the crowds and the sights here. So much yet to see!
