Melbourne has been named the world’s most liveable city for the fourth year in a row. See the Economist. As a local, I enjoy a day out as a tourist in my own city. I love walking through the pedestrian lane ways, admiring the Victorian architecture and street cafes, the famous graffiti lane and the river promenades, observing the small changes that take place in cultural life. Melbourne looks different in winter, the low light alters the colour of familiar landmarks.
St Paul’s Cathedral, below, displays a warm welcome to refugees, with an orange sign on its ancient facade. If only the current Australian government shared these sentiments.
Thanks Ailsa for suggesting the orange theme on Where’s My Backpack.
