Melbourne, Australia

March 14, 2016

After being in some remote small villages, Melbourne was a shock to the senses.  There were two things I wanted to do:  Check out an Opal store that I found on-line and find Graffiti Alley.  The day was overcast and chilly when we arrived.  There is a metro kiosk in the terminal where we bought swipe cards for the ride to the center of the city.

 Old next to new

 The opal shop is owned by a man in his 60's that has been mining since he was 20 years old.  He had some pets in the back to show us.  I am holding a baby python and a Blue Tongued Lizard.  I surprised myself! 

 Graffiti Alley has been here since the early 1960's.  Below is a fake wallet as art.

 My favorite piece on the side of a large building

 We found wifi at Federation Square

 Series of sunset shots.  I like how Vince captured the large alien face in the first one
