Dr. C’s – Sightseeing in Melbourne – Day 1

Yesterday was the first free day.

We went to breakfast at Automatic (we saw Matthew Small), walked past the Rialto towers, rode a trolly where we saw many artwork displays and a stadium, we went to the Melbourne Gaol and learned about Ned Kelly, walked by RMIT, did some shopping for gifts and went to an AFL store, chocolate store, passed by the Melbourne Train Station, went to lunch, went to the royal botanic gardens, stopped off at the pick way and bought a coke and shop lindt truffles, came back to the hotel and talked with Young about Educause, and finally went to the Red Emperor for Chinese food. We had some great food in a chef’s choice mode. That is, we didn’t really order anything… they just brought some great food! Scallops, Beef, Prawns, Rice, Duck, and for desert Chinese pancakes with custard and red bean. It was a great time!
