So many things to see and do! This weekend I went to the Melbourne Aquarium- it was amazing. I got to see hundreds of fish- most from right here in Australia. Definitely check out the pictures- I took lots. I got to hold a starfish and my favorit part was the shark feeding. Two scuba divers swim in this massive tank that surrounds a whole room. All the fish swarm around and feed. I thought the stingrays were pretty impressive- they're huge! One time a sting ray mistook a sea turtle for a piece of food and had its whole head in its mouth. Luckily the sting ray realized that the turtle wasn't for eating and spit it back out. The sharks were pretty big too. The scuba divers didn't have to worry because the aquarium only keeps the nonagressive kind. I think they have one of the neatest jobs in the world. On Sunday I went to St. Kilda's- Melbourne's closest beach. It was warm and sunny with palm trees everywher. We walked out on the pier and I saw some wild starfish- they were so cool. They also had an outdoor market with crafts for sale in tents. I bought a few presents to take home. Yesterday I went up the Riolta Tower- the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere (soon to be surpassed by another sky scraper that is being built in Melbourne). It was really neat to see the city from so high up. I found places I still have to visit- like the Melbourne Cricket Ground for rugby, the Telestra Dome for Aussie rules football, the horse racing course where the Melbourne Cup is held, the Formula One racetrack by St. Kilda's, all the beautiful gardens- so many things to see and do- it's so exciting. At school we are still having orientation. Today is when the Australian students arrived. I was in a really fun group- our host was great and she told us about everything we need to know about campus. Tomorrow the orientation contiues with more displays and my favorite part- free stuff!
