My year in Melbourne

From July 1997 I stayed one year in Melbourne, Australia. I had been working in a project for quite some time in Sweden, and when the project moved down to Melbourne because the customer was Telstra I took my chance and followed.

I settled down in a pretty small appartment in funky Fitzroy, on Moor street just next to lively Brunswick street. My little appartment even had the smallest little garden I've ever seen, and my own car port.

For what must be at least a kilometer, the street is lined with hip little cafes, restaurants, alternative fashion shops, interior design shops, book shops open until at least 10, 11 in the evening and heaps of other strange butiques. I enjoyed just walking down the street Sunday morning, checking the shops and getting a perfect cafe latte. I've never found the same athmosphere except perhaps for Venice Beach, LA. The cute picture is a scanned postcard from one of the shops along the street, called Polyester. They has a somewhat different range of books then Borders.
