So I’m in Melbourne until Tuesday. So far I’ve wandered the streets of the cbd, stopping in for a haircut at Synergy on Collins St, caught the train out to Malvern to see Veigli’s pad, missing the last tram back to the city and being ‘rescued’ from a tram headed for Kew. I’ve dined on ribs, red wine and taster desserts at The Grill Room, been dancing at Allumbra and heard 2 days of inspirational and informative talks at the innaugural Semi-Permanent Melbourne.

The last time I was south of the border was about 5 years ago when coming down to hear DJ Hernan Cattaneo play. Since then there has been a mass of development in the cbd and surrounds. The buildings going up seem to be nicely designed, interestingly shaped and quite colorful. It’s also interesting to note how branded Everything here in Melbourne is…

I’m not sure what the remainder of my time down here will consist of, if you have any suggestions or recommendations, let me know!!
