Last Thursday was my birthday. I took myself by train into downtown Melbourne and had a fine time capturing lots of photos of Melbourne's China Town. I actually enjoyed celebrating my birthday on my own, never done that before. I rediscovered it's nice to do something completely for me once in a while.
Melbourne's Chinatown was established during the Victorian gold rush in 1851 when Chinese prospectors joined the rush in search of gold. It is notable as the oldest Chinatown in Australia, the oldest continuous Chinese settlement in Australia, and the longest continuously running Chinatown outside of Asia. (copied entirely from Wikipedia...cos I'm having a lazy spell aaannnnd they had all the links ready to go.) :)
Have a great Ruby Tuesday and don't forget to visit MARY/THETEACH, Ruby Tuesday's host.
