Tour Started on time. Lots of jostling eager Chinese Tourists. Tour Guide Was Australian with Chinese origins. Reasonable stops on the way for Lunch. Insistance of using BATHROOM .. was little jarring

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
