New York!

Martha on one of the old El trains - it's called a Woody becuase it's made of wood. They can't run these in the subway tunnels.
Old ad.

Me with Melbourne's Christmas tree.

I liked the trams. They reminded me of the streetcars in New Orleans. Especially the green ones.

Koala House
The fountain at the Cultural Centre. The Cultural Centre is where all the museums are. I saw a great exhibit on Aborigines.

The Commissariat Store, which was convict-built. Apparently, Brisbane was the prison you got sent to if you were too bad for Sydney. I had a guided tour, and I was the only person on my tour. The guide said I ask very precise questions.

I just liked these old buildings.
