ANIMATION DOMINATION: DREAMWORKS THE EXHIBITION

TURN BACK TIME: AZTECS MELBOURNE MUSEUM

If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I would not want to hang around too long with the Aztecs.
Human sacrifice is mostly the reason why.
Plus their priests fondness for wearing a sacrifice’s skin until it rotted away.

Although they did like their chocolate so it wasn’t all bad news…

CHAI CHALLENGE #3 – STORM IN A TEACUP

Moving to a new city can be a little lonely. During my first few weeks in Melbourne I filled my days finding new cafes to drink coffee, read and watch the day go by. At the corner of my street Storm In A Teacup, a tiny tea shop/cafe/bar, quickly became my preferred hideaway to escape the world.

Storm In A Teacup is devoted to the wonderful beverage that is tea. Black, white, green, oolong, fruity, tisane – you’ll find hundreds of teas on the menu carefully selected from around the world. At night the cafe turns into a bar with tea based cocktails as well as organic wines and beers available.
