SATURDAY 19TH MAY 2007
ARRIVED IN CANBERRA & went for a wander. Was really shocked at how quiet it was. we hardly saw any people around & there was little noise or traffic. It was a bit eery like a ghost town. We walked upto the houses of parliament (new & old) & then back by the lake. It's a very green city, kind of like a series of parks but with buildings scattered here and there. Not atv all what we expected after hearing so much negativity about it - quite like it but there was not much to do. went to wacth the FA cup final & obviously were feeling dejected afterwards! Quite a short blog but there really wasn't too much to do except walk & take in the surroundings.
