|This rainforest area is right in the middle of South Bank.|
I strolled over to South Bank this morning. This is a parkland area and provides a green space for city dwellers and workers. There were market stalls doing a steady trade.
Oddly enough I saw no ibises today although on my previous visits there were hundreds.
Rugged up locals.
|You can actually swim here and a lifesaver is always on duty.|
|This Tibetan temple is intricately carved and was a gift to the city |
about 20 years ago when a big trade show was held here.
Expo 88 I think.
Later I walked down to Fortitude Valley to see the shops there. And I found a wonderful enclave of fashionable cooking, furniture, and clothing stores.
|I had never seen white asparagus before.|
|Purple carrots and look how cheap they are.|
Wonderful. My wallet flew open.
I saw some interesting fresh vegetables that I had only ever seen before in magasines. Food is quite cheap here and the quality is terrific.
