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.

Bye Bye Perth

What the hell have I’ve been up to the last week you might be asking? There has been steady stream of photos but nothing in the form of text, or details of my adventures.

I got back from Margaret River and spent the last several days working on editing some of the video I took. Hopefully, you should see the results of it very soon. I’m very excited.

Tomorrow I fly from Perth to Adelaide, where I visit my final Australian state: South Australia. My plan for Adelaide is to drive to to Naracote, a World Heritage site about 200 miles out of Adelaide and the Barossa wine region. I’ll then hop up to visit Uluru to close out my Australian adventure.

I’ve also just been suffering from good old writers block. As I’ve stated before, I’m suffering from Australia fatigue and am looking forward to a change of venue. Got to keep moving….
