Five Days in Adelaide, South Australia

Last week I celebrated my friend Pauline’s big birthday by taking her to the four day National Play Festival.  We attended half a dozen readings and ate a lot before, after and in between performances.

Adelaide is a small, quiet city; a nice break for me.  It’s two hours by air from Sydney.  I stayed in a hotel in town and walked everywhere.  I like that.  There were  few people about and less cars, though they all turned out for a football match.  I enjoyed the street art as much as the Art Gallery.

    Adelaide is such a quaint city – I’m glad to see they still have the reflective objects in Rundle Mall (they used to be stacked hexagons – or something similar) when I lived there in the ’80s. That food looks amazing…almost worth the 2 hour flight alone!
