For those interested, these are kuderna danish flasks, which are used for concentrating a solvent in a fast but controlled manner over boiling water.kd flasksTourist industry in Hanoi hangs on the selling of cheap clothing.

PABUCA Arriving in Melbourne

Some lucky travellers see this as they arrive in Melbournefoggy cityMelbourne’s founders travelled up the Yarra to arrive a rock barrier, which used be at the bottom right hand side of this photograph. Over the years, this arrival point has moved further downstream, including the man-made Victoria Harbour, mid-right. Ships do still arrive at docks downstream of the Bolte Bridge, however, large modern ships will be too large to enter the river, possibly even Port Phillip Bay.arrival 2Many commuters arrive at the city by train at Flinders Street Station, completed in 1909.arrival 1See more Arrival Photos here.

Olive.

I am fond of olives, especially on a napolitana pizza, or any sort pizza. I can get olive overload though, so no photographs of them. The windows on the 89th floor of the Eureka Tower in Melbourne were an olive colour, giving an olive cast over everything, until your eyes adjusted. Below is a picture of the Spirit of Tasmania as it is leaving Melbourne heading for Tassie. For Jennifer’s Olive.spirit

Twinkle

Port Phillip, is a large bay in southern Victoria, Australia; it is the location of Melbourne. Geographically, the bay covers 1,930 square kilometres (745 square miles) and the shore stretches roughly 264 km (160 miles). At not many points on the Bay, can you look around and see the shores on the other side. On this particular night you could see everything. Daily Post Twinklenight rosebud
