Lizette in Melbourne

I caught the train down to Melbourne on Friday afternoon, after a second interview for a job. I joined the madness on the streets of the city to get to the Bourke Street Mall, and the old GPO building.

No longer a post office, the GPO is a funky city building with boutiques and cool bars. I made my way up to the second level and The Lexington, and was soon joined by Jenny and Lizette. Lizette was in town for a few days, and Jenny got a group together to have Friday night drinks in style!

After several rounds of drinks, food was a must. A stop at Jen's old faithful, Nando's, before wandering further along Queens Street. We soon found a bar that offered bonus entry for the ladies, and a bag of goodies and free champagne as well! The Chaise held our interest momentarily, as we downed champers, enjoyed a mini dance, and scored some goodies, like these Midori sunglasses - hee hee!

Running out of options, with the city streets seeming deserted (where did the earlier crowds go!!??), we made our way to Federation Square,and Charmaine's for icecream and chats, overlooking the city lights.

Lizette is back off to London soon, after catching up with family and friends around the country. Was good to catch up with her while she was in Melbourne - good times, as always!
