So here are my top 6 reasons why Melbourne is Awesome!
1: We get a day off work to watch a Horse Race!!!
2: Some of the best food is served on the street from random caravans. These meals are generally the cheapest and best.
3: Our previously dirty laneways are now a tourist attraction full of amazing graffiti.
4: The famous MCG is not only the home of the footy but is also known as a unit of measure.
5: Running into an Academy award winning actor such as Geoffrey Rush a one of our superb restaurants is not unlikely.
6: When you order a piccolo at a cafe you won’t get a small wooden flute.
