Melbourne Brunswick Street

Melbourne Brunswick Street , originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

We found the trams a great way to get around and soon we were hopping on and off to get around, but one day we hopped on to go to South Melbourne but got on the one going in the opposite direction. We decided to stay on for the ride and that is when we found Brunswick Street. What an interesting area. We loved the old weathered look of the buildings that glorified in their aging facades, and the slower life style of the residents, many of them riding bikes. Again the café culture was alive and well with people sitting at tables on the pavement drinking their coffees. The graffiti here was more artistic than we saw in the lanes and more of it. This area was our favourite.

Talking to Paul, our CS host, later that evening, he said he called it the “grunge” area of Melbourne and the heart of the old town. He was brought up in the area and he hoped they never changed it by sprucing it up.We agreed with that sentiment…
