Coffee and Beer

November 28, 2007 — Jason del Sur

I’m sorry I have no incredibly funny stories to report so far. It’s been fairly tame so far, but incredibly relaxing. This is mainly due to the fact that there is little to do in Melbourne except sit at cafes and drink coffee or beer.

Yesterday, I did very little besides wander from cafe to cafe. To help illustrate my point here is my approximate schedule for yesterday:

9:30am: Wake up, eat a light breakfast, shower, etc
11am: Arrive St. Kilda beach, sit at cafe, take coffee
12pm: Walk along beach (I didn’t bring my trunks as I was warned the water would be too cold this early in the summer. That was a lie, well, at least relative to Lake Michigan).
1pm: Sit outside and eat lunch (best octopus I’ve had outside of Greece). More coffee
2:30pm: Wander around St. Kilda. One more cafe for a beer
4pm: Take the tram to Carlton, another area of town where there was probably about 50-60 restaurants in about a mile stretch on Lygon Street. Wander around Carlton. Another cafe or two.
7:30p: Meet Ewen and Victoria at the Night Market, sort of like a Chicago Street fair, but it happens every Wednesday. There’s bands and lots of great food.
10:30pm: Bars. Wednesday was a fairly quiet night at the bars, but had a great time chilling over a couple beers with Ewen.

So, as I said, nothing crazy and insane, but damn was it a nice day. Today, we’re heading up the Great Ocean Road for some nice coastline scenery.

And now for some pictures:
