Hobart Sight-Seeing

Alright, here it is- another pictorial update of my environment.

On the Saturday two weeks ago, I went to Salamanca Market which is a famous tourist attraction of Hobart. It’s only 10-15 minutes’ walk away from my apartment, which is pretty near.

I really enjoy the place- it’s atmosphere, liveliness, music, sound, people.. et cetera. There are stalls selling many kinds of things ranging from barbecue sausages to framed historical photographs. There is even a photographer selling his works there- Wolfgang Glowacki.

Beside Salamanca place sits one of the finest park I’ve ever seen- St. Davey’s Park. It’s a really peaceful, beautiful place to have a picnic (I’m quite obsessed with picnicking, somehow). Damn, my photos just can’t do it justice. I’ll go to the park again tomorrow morning if the weather allows me, to take more photos of the serene place.

So yeah, enjoy the photos!

These performers plays really nice music. There are lots of them at different places of the market, and there are several shifts per day too.

There was a speaker (maybe politician) giving speech there about climate change and political parties of Australia.

Hmm, I guess that’s it for my update. I’m glad to say that I’m adapting to this place well, and oh, there will be more pictorial updates of my barbeque lunch and outing with my friends. ;)
