Danny and Anna's Round The World Trip 2005 travel blog

A successful day of shopping in central Sydney and of dashed hopes in the Melbourne Cup.

Danny finally bought some new sandals after what seemed like months of nagging. The smelly sandals were binned in the shop and he walked home in his new shoes past all the smartly dressed revellers who had started pouring out of the pubs after a boozy afternoon celebrating the Melbourne Cup.

We had a flutter on the big race ourselves but despite our horses leading the pace for most of the race they were pipped to the post by Makybe Diva. This race is even bigger than the Grand National, it brings the nation to a standstill and when we emerged from the pub after the 3 o'clock race more than one store had a "Back Soon" sign displayed.

Day 247 complete
