When I got to Melbourne yesterday, it was very warm.
Melbourne is the second biggest city after Sydney.
It was 34.7 degrees, but today it was 19.7 degrees and cold.

Today, I went to the city with my friend.
CBD stands for Central Business District.
I liked the atmosphere created by historical and modern buildings, of which I didn't see many in Sydney.
It reminded me of my hometown, Kyoto.
As you can see from the picture, Flinders Street Station is the central station of Melbourne.
It is an iconic building in Melbourne and it's close to the Yarra River, which goes through the city.
There are many churches built long ago and they create Melbourne itself.


I bought a one-day one zone ticket, which cost only $7,
and I was able to catch trains, trams, and buses.
Along with buildings, another big difference is the trams.
Trams run on almost every street and I really like them.

For lunch, we went to a Vietnamese restaurant and ordered Phở and their iced coffee.
It's a Vietnamese noodle soup with beef.
According to Wikipedia, 'the soup includes noodles made from rice and is often served with Vietnamese basil, mint leaves, lime, and bean sprouts'.
Vietnamese iced coffee was very sweet like the Milk coffee sold in Japan.
Unlike in Sydney, Vietnamese food is more popular than Thai food.


The weather changed from rainy to sunny repeatedly,
I became very tired from the weather and was not able to see the city that well.
But I'll definitely come back and hang out more.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
