Pigeons Down Under
Adelaide, as you have now heard, is a city laid out (in 1836), with wide boulevards and this central square called Victoria Square. Here, the one and only remaining Electric Tram line, to Glenelg, has it's terminus. Adelaide is known as the 20 minute city. You can get to anywhere in under 20 minutes, but today with the thermometer on 40 C / 104 F, I wasn't going further than the local Aldgate paint shop.
I shall continue to zoom you in to Adelaide, as time goes by.
At midday, when it was only 100 F, (still nice and cool), I popped down to the local shops, with camera, of course. On returning, and before painting in the bathroom, I took this shot for my Northern Hemisphere friends.
