• And Kangaroos ?

     

     
    Kangaroos are they a myth? There are two times more than Australians, but since our arrival, we did not see the tail of which is nevertheless very impressive.

    After the Blue Mountains, we drive to Melbourne with a stop in Albury. This is equivalent to the crossing of France. The motorway (limited to 110 km / h) takes us through farmland with still a lot of Eucalyptus. The temperature is always above 30 ° C. At Albury, we dine Italian and manager indicates the presence of kangaroos on golf. Braving fire balls (golf) and noisy parrots we discover our first (and perhaps only) kangaroos.

     

    Et les kangourous ?Et les kangourous ?Et les kangourous ?

    Et les kangourous ?

    Et les kangourous ?

    Et les kangourous ?Et les kangourous ?

    Et les kangourous ?Et les kangourous ?

    And kangaroo mother ....

    Et les kangourous ?

    It is in the pocket

  • Melbourne

     

    Melbourne and its 4 million people are preparing to celebrate Christmas. The city is decorated and all have their race. The windows of department stores animated automata attract children in procession as the Boulevard Hausmann. The salvation army is selling red caps and the league against the local cancer sells reindeer antlers. As Sydney charities make the show on the road. We note a very high Asian concentration.

    For us this year will not have a Christmas tree and gifts to open our priority is to find the internet. Thank you McDonald's offering us all the wifi. Australian hotel systematically pay the wifi with a few exceptions. It's quite surprising.

    At four o'clock we taste of foie gras brought from France with a bottle of white wine vintage.

    We stroll along the river turned into trendy promenade and green space.

    In the evening we're in Greektown. Melbourne is the third Greek city. We find souvenir shops like Plaka in Athens. Amazing. We eat at Tsindos tasty Greek dishes and a beer Mythos. One downside are we away from the Cretan fare and prices remind us that we are in Australia.

  • Christmas on the beach

     

    At a time when the French began the day before Christmas, we go for a beach day in Melbourne. We start with the botanical garden. There are botanical gardens in large cities. It is early and already the Australian spread tablecloths to picnic under the trees. Many came with packets: yes, it's Christmas.

    C'est  Noël à la plage ( Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah)C'est  Noël à la plage ( Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah)C'est  Noël à la plage ( Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah)C'est  Noël à la plage ( Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah)

     It's an eel

     

    C'est  Noël à la plage ( Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah tchiki boum, tchiki boum Ah)

    Then we go to St Kilda to go to the beach. It is already very hot. After eating at a local Tex-Mex, we expect it to do so hot on lawns in the shade. Australian completely uninhibited wear their Christmas costumes. Some even come with the tree on the beach. But what is striking are the packs of beer and bottles of wine that run on the sand. The Australian made ​​his party on the beach and drink. We saw go swimming staggering. Because at this point, there are no waves were much the can in his hand in the water.

    In the evening we wait to see the little penguins that live in Australia and come back every night to sleep on the beach. It was not until nightfall and it's pretty box. The colony over 1000 individuals. At first we expected watching the sunset on the Sky Line of Melbourne. After one wonders when they will arrive. Do not expect an influx and it's on the drops as it goes. We see some awkwardly walk on the dike. It's still very nice. Flash photography prohibited. Normally we should see in a next step to Philip Island.
