Last weekend the Man and I spent our once yearly weekend in the city, staying in a nice hotel, getting frocked up, and going to a speeches-and-dinner event all thanks to his employers.
We spent Saturday afternoon wandering around the streets without purpose, just being stickynoses and having cuppas. Of course, before dinner we did what all couples do when they have dumped the kids with the Grandparents and have a king-sized bed and a hotel room to themselves. We went back to the room and had a nap. Oh yeah, we’re living on the edge… 😀
One thing I do like to look at while we are in the city is the street art. I hate graffiti and tagging but I love the amazing pieces of art that people can create.
Melbourne is internationally famous for its street art and you can even go on walking tours to see the best of it.*
When I looked up some of the details on our street art I was very interested to find that it is controlled by a permit system.
After seeing these guys at work in a laneway off the Bourke Street Mall I shouldn’t have really been surprised that it is heavily regulated. After all, they had orange warning cones out….
*According to EllaDee Sydney is no slouch when it comes to street art though!
