A Largely Fanciful History of the Spiegeltent

October 9, 2008

So I planned on going to the opening ceremony of the Melbourne Arts festival tonight, but sure as the sun will rise, so will I be late….for EVERYthing.  I managed to miss the entire thing (“so I’m the tardy one!?“)  which was mildly vexing because apparently there was going to be a fire show and it wasn’t meant to finish until 10pm but by the the time I got there everyone was walking away and holding novelty glow sticks.  I wanted one badly but couldn’t see the source of everyone else’s fun….

I wasn’t about to let my $3.50 train ticket go to waste so I thought i’d amble around the city a little.

Here’s some photos:

Melbourne loves being blue…

Pretty much standard to all you Melbournites but for us foreigners…the lights are like candies for our eyes.

Even though I missed the fire show I still saw some fire with this dude poiing it up riverside…

And then I was just in time to see Melbourne’s regular fire display…

I obviously broke my no eating after 8pm rule and chowed down on lordo…

American sauce of course

Looks like dogshit tastes like Gold.

Looks like dogshit, tastes like Gold.

Then I went and got some of these special little treats…

The more I think about this statement the less it makes sense, I think I actually scratched my head when I read it.  So I ate another one…

I love doing stuff on my own.  I like that I know i’m going to remember this night forever.  Melbourne rocks.
