To the Gold Coast

On the eve of departure from Sydney, we finally went to Taronga Zoo, the zoo there (an additional entertainment is to go there through the bay to the “ferry”: you sit in the stern, look at the receding center of Sydney until the illegible giants of the skyscrapers turn into a glossy view card with a tower Sydney Bridge and Opera House). “And koalas can’t have a day off? And they will let me hold them? Are there many of them?” I was worried, and the organizers laughed and reassured me. And now the line from the Japanese has been stood up to photograph the kangaroo, the peacock walking along the paths between the visitors has been stroked, the attraction “Bowing Elephant” has been watched, and the sleepy wombat has been awakened.

Australia in which dreams come true

Since then, I Continue reading

The birth of the Melbourne bath

When guests of Melbourne are interested in the sights of the city, residents primarily call … local baths. “Of course, these are not the famous Roman baths, where the fate of the ancient world was often decided, but on the scale of our country their footprint is very noticeable,” they say. “Although the history of our baths is not so long – only a century and a half.”

The first line in the Australian “bathhouse chronicle” entered the 200-ton Swedish brig “Nancy”, stranded near the Melbourne coast near Fitzroy Street. The place was called Green Hill, but immigrants from Europe, who mastered the new continent, dubbed it a bathhouse. It is here, as historical chronicles Continue reading
