Downtown Melbourne

Thursday morning we enjoyed breakfast with our hosts before taking a short tram ride to the central business district of Melbourne. The city has quite an interesting array of architectural styles, yet somehow they all manage to work together. We enjoyed learning more about the city from one of our hosts before he left for another commitment. We toured beautiful St. Paul's Cathedral, and then found a quirky little restaurant for lunch. We were told we needed to try an Aussie Pie for a meal, so we did. They were tasty, and we even liked our salads despite the fact that they had no dressing on them.

We spent the afternoon wandering through the town, and then took a walk along the Yarra River. Despite being a little overcast, it was a nice day to be out and about. We managed to catch the correct tram back to our neighborhood, and even made it to the house without getting lost!

Today we say goodbye to Australia. It has been a wonderful adventure, but we are eager to see what New Zealand holds in store for us.
