Aventuras en Melbourne
Part I, Walking from St. Kilda back to the CBD

I met So at the Hilton on the Park on the edge of Melbourne’s CBD (Central Business District, a.k.a. Downtown.) As we began to chat, we decided that we should get out and do something because we both knew that it would be so easy to simply sit and talk for the next umpteen hours and thus headed to 7-11 to buy tram tickets. So asked one of the employees how long it would take to walk from St. Kilda to where we were. The employee looked shocked, “You can’t walk from there! That’s way too far!” We asked how long it would take and were told about an hour. We took the tram to St. Kilda, walked down the street, window-shopped, and had a wonderful dinner complete with Australian Shiraz. Then we decided to walk back to the hotel. It was a beautiful evening and the walk took slightly more than an hour and a half during which we saw sights in Melbourne we would not have seen otherwise. Walk as much as possible. Walking is good.
