Melbourne: oh how I wish I had remembered the camera!
It is like Australia has a cultural center after all!!
All the buildings in the (admittedly downtown) area I have seen are brimming with flamboyant character. There are 7 zillion museums and libraries (I am sitting in one right now with a sculpted plaster fretwork lining a 5 storey high vaulted glass capola ceiling, with operatic boxes dotted throughout!!
A feast for the soul!!
This has been a real discovery!!
Sorry there are no pix. 😦
