Last week-end was in Melbourne . Although I should have been more patriotic and stayed in front of my screen to watch the finals between France and New Zealand (7-8) where we didn’t win but won some respect, I have to admit that Melby has still some quirks than Sydney doesn’t have such as great exhibitions (Tutankhamun until 04 Dec at the Melbourne Museum). Believe it or not, it was fully crowded on a hot and sunny Sunday afternoon. Considering the size of the exhibition, no wonder it is not touring across Australia : no other museum would have enough room for a temporary exhibition like this one. Not that it is that incredibly big, but museums (at least in Sydney ) are pretty tiny. I mean, you don’t need more than one hour or so to get around the major ones (MCA, Art Gallery of NSW, Australian Museum, MoS…) and unless there is some events with alcohol involved, I rarely saw Sydney cultural places being as crowded as the exhibition I saw in Melbourne… But maybe that’s a one off…

 

Apart from that, we also visited the SBS Radio studios, thanks to a friend of mine I encountered through Le Francophone project. We also went to Eureka Sky Deck 88 where you get the view on the city at 88th level of the building, and we discovered a macaroon shop “La Belle Miette” which was so good, we came back single every day and brought a good dozen of them back to Sydney
