imageWe did not make it to the parade yesterday. We headed in a different direction and took the “hop on hop off” bus around Melbourne. The city has lovely parks and beautiful architecture, some very modern and some gothic. Our first trip with the tour is today and we will  get off of the bus and visit more sights than we saw in our overview. We have moved from the Marriott to the Langham hotel with the tour group. The hotel is five star and very beautiful and elegant. Our room overlooks the Yarra River. Last night we met all of the members of our group and our guide Lisa Taylor. As we surmised from the few couples who we met on the plane and at the airport, everyone is very nice and ready to have a great time together.  We had a elegant buffet dinner in the hotel restaurant. Lisa has been leading tours for Tauck for twenty years and stressed in her welcome that she is here for us twenty four hours a day.
