15 / 02 / 2012 - Paul

It's been a lovely few days here in Melbourne. This is a vibrant and pleasant city, with a nice climate, friendly audiences and great architecture. Both concerts have been great fun, and the venue, Melbourne Recital Centre, is a world-class auditorium. The hall's designer attended last night's concert, and was so pleased to receive our positive feedback.

We've been staying at the 'Mantra Southbank' - a really nice apartment hotel, and we've had our own kitchens and washing machines. It has been a rare pleasure to do my own washing and ironing as well as a bit of cooking!! Simple pleasures, but like a home from home.

So now onto Sydney once again and to the Opera House, one of the world's most iconic buildings. More soon ....

A scene of domestic bliss at the Mantra Apartment Hotel!
