We had a few beers overlooking the QV night markets. We ordered knuckle sandwiches and Poutine. The sandwiches were juicy and tasty. The Poutine was ok but not as good as those available in Canada.

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
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
