This week I went to the Eureka Skydeck, the Southern Hemisphere’s highest viewing platform, which I loved! It was rather amazing to see all of Melbourne from a height of 88 stories and as we went at night, I was able to see the city all lit up. We went on the Edge, a glass cube suspended 300 metres above the ground, where at first the glass was foggy so we couldn’t see anything. The glass cube started moving outwards, hanging three meters off of the building and then the fog on the glass disappeared and we were able to see the whole city and it was AMAZING! However, due to the fact that I have a fear of heights I was really scared.
I also saw the play, Wicked, in a historic theater that has been around for more than 100 years. Wicked was an amazing production and I couldn’t believe the power in the voice of the main character. I also got to see a netball game due to the fact that Sianna plays and I thought it was rather similar to basketball but looked more difficult. I am still loving Melbourne and I can’t believe that I’m half way through my exchange.
