The Travelling Teapot

Hello,

I love travelling and hope to share with you some of the places I have visited. I called my blog "The Travelling Teapot" because I like travelling around, and every time I go away somewhere, the first thing I do when I arrive at my destination is have a nice hot cup of tea!

Darwin - June 2006. Shopping In The Top End

June 2006

Walking along the city streets sucking in all that hot air made for a thirsty stroll. The number of times my 600 ml water bottle was refilled was too numerous too mention. The streets were uncrowded, and unlike other capital cities there were very few pedestrians and motor vehicles. In fact, some of the locals were incensed that a set of trafic lights had been installed.


The Plaza, Anthony Plaza is a lovely mall with a shady rotunda and ample seating. A children's adventure play area nearby meant the mums and dads could take the weight off their feet and relax - a popular pastime in the middle of the day. Actually, a popular pastime whatever the time as the balmy warm air just begs for relaxation and doing nothing.



The Darwin Newsagency where I purchased my weekly copy of "That's Life" magazine. A kind lady took the photo for the pose.

Looks like the same mall I took the children to see the Queen when she visited Australia and we were living there! She passed by just a metre away from us! The joys of living in Darwin! You have prompted me to think about starting a new blog for my Top End adventures also!

Writing a blog about Darwin would, I should think be a very interesting read, I doubt there's as much information as there would be for other capital cities. I've heard it said that December is "suicide" month. All the humidity...
