City of Melbourne - AUSTRALIA
It's usual to say that friday the 13th is a unlucky day, but after a nice day at work I've returned home and found five cards waiting on my mailbox - not bad at all. The first one is a official card from Melbourne, Australia with a link to the best spots in the city... and I think this card went to all of them, because it took almost two months to find its way to my house. Thanks a lot Paul and good luck on your charity programs. This postcard took 51 days to arrive!
Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia. It is located on the large natural bay of Port Phillip, with its City Centre situated at the northernmost point of the bay – near to the estuary of the Yarra River. Founded on 30 August 1835 in what was then the Colony of New South Wales, it is a leading financial centre in Australia as well as the Asia-Pacific region, and has been ranked the World's most livable city since 2011 (and among the top three since 2002) – according the Economist Intelligence Unit.
