Most days in Melbourne involve good food and today was no exception. For once, I actually made something decent:
Bruschetta for lunch!
I met some friends for pizza tonight at Tazio downtown. Getting there was a bit of a challenge though. Ever since Melbourne adopted a free tram policy in the CBD at the beginning of this year, I've gotten measurably lazier. Previously, I couldn't justify spending $3.00 to take the tram a few blocks when I could walk for free. Now, I find myself hopping on the tram to travel embarrassingly short distances, like today for example. I grabbed the tram with the intention of riding it for a few blocks because I was lazy but that plan backfired almost immediately when the tram got into a fender bender with a car. It was a minor accident, but the tram driver and the driver of the car had to exchange information and assess the damage and it quickly became clear that we weren't going anywhere soon. So, I got off the tram and ended up walking those few blocks anyway. I'll take it as a sign.
Here's the margherita pizza I ordered:
It was really good! Margherita pizza here is different than in the U.S. It's essentially just extra cheesy cheese pizza with basil sprinkled on top. It's good, but I still prefer the kind I'm used to with slices of tomato, basil leaves and mozzarella cheese. I just now noticed that I basically had the same thing for lunch and dinner in different forms. YOLO.
After dinner we went to N2 Extreme Gelato, of course!
On a completely random and unrelated note, I love this koala stamp that came on an envelope the other day. So Australian!
