I get into Melbourne and find my way to my hotel where I want to crash for a few hours but am unable to check in and have to just drop off bags instead.  I do a walking tour of the city that includes all of Southbank and most of the central business district before heading back to the hotel for a mid-afternoon nap.  I wake up and get ready for a night on the town with Sarah (from Thailand) and her girls.

Sarah picks me up and we head across the street to Eureka, the highest residential tower in the world which doubles as the highest observation deck in the southern hemisphere.  The views of the city from the skydeck are amazing and the "Edge" is a cool gimmick to get tourists to spend more money.

Next we head to Nobu, one and the same as the Vegas restaurant, to meet up with 3 of her girl friends that are quite cool and all absolutely beautiful.  Dinner is good, but not great, and the girls are amazed that we wind up sitting next to some guy that they describe as the richest man in Australia... while I am amazed with the company at my own table.

Sarah and I grab a drink before she leaves me back at my hotel for the night.
