I’m currently in Adelaide, South Australia. The last state in my (long) tour of Australia.
The weather the last few days has been overcast, cold and rainy. Nonetheless, I like the city of Adelaide. The area of town I’m staying is near Chinatown and it is loaded with tons of restaurants of all sorts.
I wish the weather was better so I could better experience the city. I’d say that it is my favorite city in Australia so far, save for Melbourne. The city is laid out in a grid, so you don’t see any roundabouts (which is fine by me). The city of Adelaide proper looks as if it is a big square surrounded by parks when you look at it on a map.
In addition to the resaturants, there seems to be a very vibrant arts scene here. Lots of theater and music.
I’ll be renting a car to visit some places outside of town, then making the trek up to Uluru. I might do another Margaret River type excursion as well.
I ate dinner last night as a Brazilian steak house, which is the first time I’ve ever done that. It wasn’t a really fancy place, but it was some of the best beef I’ve had since I was in Buenos Aires several years ago. I’ve been eating much better in Adelaide if for no other reason than the food in the neighborhood is so much better.
