Melbourne (pronounced "Melben" by the Aussies) is a city I have always wanted to see since I started traveling internationally. I was not disappointed with what I saw in the limited time I was there. I'll probably go back another time, may be see more of Australia as well.

An Australian equivalent of a Southern California lunch truck. It will freak me out if I see a Southern California food vendor in a tie!
Shown at the Shrine of Remembrance are military medals awarded to Australian soldiers

Check out the very narrow clearance between the boat and the bridge!
