I woke up to a thunderstorm and it kept on raining pretty hard until about noon. Luckily it cleared up afterwards as I had booked a walking tour of Melbourne for the afternoon. We walked around downtown for about 3.5 hours which was very interesting and definitely provided me with a better overview of the city - and the sun was shining! (Probably only because I bought an umbrella beforehand.) And since the weather turned out to be so nice after all, I decided to go to Fitzroy Gardens for the remainder of the afternoon.
Today was also AAMI Victoria Derby Day, "a day of pure elegance" according to the guide I picked up. It seemed most of Melbourne participated in today's horse racing event and it was really quite a sight on the train this morning as everybody was wearing black and white and all the ladies were sporting fascinators. Unfortunately, I couldn't take a picture on the train but I managed this nice shot at a tram stop in the afternoon
