WELCOME TO BURN CITY: HAPPY SNAPPING + MOVIDA NEXT DOOR + DANDENONGS

WARNING: SUPER IMAGE HEAVY!

 

day3; a fan of classic architecture; i took clarence to melbourne uni in the morning to take photos of some of the buildings on campus; a lot of the older buildings were of interest! i thought ok WHY NOT, and brought my dSLR to join him in taking photos. it was fun! found a few cool things around uni…he got SO excited when we stumbled across the old arts building and the underground carpark:D

lunchtimmee! clarence totally ruined his appetite by eating some kind of cheese-stuffed pizza thing from melbourne central….then onto MoVida Next Door on Hosier Lane. i was really worried we wouldnt be able to get a  seat given the popularity of movida, but i guess being lunchtime; we managed to get a table straight away! yay!

movida next door is the original? i think…and its smaller than movida aqui, so dishes were a little different [see my movida aqui visit HERE]. we chose a snapper dish, black pudding, seafood tapas, goats cheese, quail, and stuffed peppers…wasnt bad! i think i prefer aqui’s food, but this was still quite nice. also tried some non alcoholic beer…which was interesting. i dont even like beer….i think i must’ve heard “non-alcoholic” and gone ONE FOR ME! before listening to what drink it actually was….hahaha=P

after foodies, took photos of hosier lane – didnt know there was such awesome graffiti there! a more indie type of graffiti as opposed to the more ‘street’ feel of union lane [see HERE when i took eileen]
