Arrived in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Arrived in Melbourne today. Went to the Smallworld Office in town to say hello and hot desk.

Immediately noticed that Melbourne is quite warm compared with christchurch, though is a little more humid, even at this time of year.

Melbonians (how close does that sound to Elbonians of Dilbert fame?!) are very nice but are a smart suit wearing people. Don't sound as much like Mick 'Crocodile' Dundee as I expected, in fact their accents are much much softer than kiwi accents!

Royce hotel, a five star hotel we got on a last minute deal, is ok, but is not really what you'd expect from a five star hotel. Actually it used to be a car show room, for posh cars presumably! One thing that was nice though, was that although we turned up with rucksacks, nobody got sniffy about it at the front desk!

impressed with the drive through bottle shop
