Diary - Melbourne 2006

Day 21 (Thursday, October 19th, 2006)

Dear Diary...

not exactly an educational motto - ' shop till you drop!' - but that's exactly what is bound to happen if you go to a place like Victorian Market ...

day21which we did with the Oxley Mob for most of this day. But it was not only the usual Aussie (kein Schimpfwort hier uebrigens, sondern gerne selbst genutzt als Eigenbeschreibung) icons that were much sought after but also the multicultural atmosphere of this great market. And - wait for it, dear parents and boy/girl friends! - so we could get hold of lots of nice pressies for Kirchhain. We did our cultural component as well and had an interesting introduction into Koorie tradition (the Aboriginal inhabitants of the Melbourne area).
