Arrived in Melbourne yesterday.

Achievements unlocked:  Driven the Great Ocean Road, Driven on a toll road

Caught up with some of the MonUCS for dinner, then headed off to my friend R’s place to sleep.

This morning visited the Shrine of Remembrance.

Melbourne this time around is proving familiar.   This is not unexpected as I’ve visited several times.   I’m finding on this trip that I’m getting a strong impression of how each capital cities culture translates to what a visitor experiences.  The thing I think Melbourne lacks is a driver to better things – Perth is its isolation, Adelaide not wanting to be Melbourne, Sydney wanting to be first, Brisbane to be big.   I’ll have to compare it with London when I eventually visit.
