I am finally here! It's been really exciting these past couple of days. All my flights went well- No delays and I didn't loose my luggage or have problems with customs. It was 75 and sunny when I arrived. My appartment is so big- I love it. Everyone is really warm and friendly here. The customs guy says I am going to love his country and I agree. Yesterday I walked around the block- There are so many different types of beautiful trees. I saw palms trees and others which I don't even know the name of. My first animal sighting was a dalmation coloured pigeon. Today I walked further and saw some spectacular parks, went into the city, visited some shops, and ate really good food. My appartment is located on a street filled with lots of really good restaurants- it's great. I am working on getting settled in. Tomorrow my Melbourne Welcome program begins so I will be able to meet more people and get to know the city better. So far everything has been fabulous. I took some pictures that I hope to put up once I get my computer working- which may be a little while. I am so excited to be finally here!
