Even though we had only spent one day in Melbourne, we were old hands at this town. Going back to a town for the second time is like meeting an old friend. So we dumped our bags in the hotel and ventured out for the last day - Tomas to the Botanical Gardens, Julia to do some window shopping. And then a last feast at our regular joint (going back to the place you ate at the only other time your were in town qualifies as your "regular" joint).
And before we knew it, we were headed on a plane east, way east, to sunny California. Family and friends and a big turkey feast awaited. Sad to say goodbye to Australia, yet excited to get back to the US. It has been quite a journey.
