I miss a lot of things about Victoria, and Melbourne especially. I was a student at RMIT for years – too many, actually, but my academic record is a story for another time – and I used to love wandering around the city, exploring the laneways and alleys, the smell of coffee wafting from tiny cafes, and where you’d stare through the window of gourmet chocolate and designer shoe shops that were way out of a student’s reach.
Those were the days.
I don’t regret spending the time wandering instead of in a lecture theatre.

It took me until now to notice the woman (seated) who looks like she’s pointing with her fork (ha! how rude!), and her companion who looks like he’s copping a bit of an ear bashing. They seem to be drawing the attention of the lady walking by.
