The last two days were pretty fun. Even weather was good! Yesterday I went with my aunt and uncle to tour the city of Melbourne. We just wandered around and looked in the shops windows (and shopped... :). We ate lunch in a little Vietnamese restaurant, it was the first time I ate Vietnamese food and I pretty liked it. We also went to the Melbourne Central building. This building is modern, but it was built on another building, very old one, that used to be some factory, and this factory is still standing in the middle of Melbourne Central. Nice. Then we went to the Arts centre, and then to Southbank promenade. At night I went with my other cousin Tomer to a birthday party of a friend from the university, Amanda. First we all went to some cocktail bar called "Der Baum" which was nice but expensive. They played a good Latin music, but the people I knew didn't want to dance... I wish I knew how to dance all those Latin dances. After that we went to some nearby pub called "The Swan". The place had 2 halls - one was for music and dancing and they had a live band that played MTV music, Dance and House, and it was really nice, but most of the time we were in the other hall where there’s no music and people can just talk. I'm sure I would've enjoyed more if there were more people I knew (I knew only 2 people there - Tomer and his friend Mark) and if we would've dance, but it was nice anyway. After I came back home and before I went to sleep I thought about my friends. Ayala, Talya, Hila, Sarit, Yossi, Omer, Yonatan, Vera and all the others - I miss you all so much! I hope you are all ok and having a lot of fun (even without me ;).
Today I went with my aunt to the city again, to the Rialto Tower. It's a 253 meters high building and there's an observation deck in one of the upper floors where you can see the whole area. It was a very clear day today so we saw the whole area of Melbourne. Then we went to Southbank promenade (again) to buy ourselves some nice bracelets we saw yesterday but were not sure if we want to buy it.
For the next week I'm planning to go to the zoo with my aunt, probably on wednesday, and one night I'll go with my uncle to Phillip Island to see penguins :) They go to sleep on the land every night. Oh and we'll probably go, the whole family, to see a movie on Tuesday. Except for that, I'm planning to go to Sydney for three days next month with my aunt.
