pardon the silence for the past 2 weeks or so… i had the opportunity to visit b and family in melbourne. how cool is that?!? it was my first time in australia and although it’s not the best time of year to visit but it was a great to spend time with brenda and terence. i also had a good time playing board games with sean and drinking latte almost twice everyday. melbourne coffee is good… one of the nicer coffees i had was at federal coffee palace at the melbourne GPO… also, i will never get enough of the speck, gorgonzola and pear pizza at carlton espresso on lygon street… yum!! the weather was cold, around 10-15 degrees during the day and dropping below 10 at nights. oooh, it sure was cold but nonetheless i enjoyed the good break.
