This morning started with us waking up and randomly watching Jimmy White win hsi world poker series quarter final on tv!! Then, just as we started to get ready, Heath and Loren turned up ready to go to the Melbourne Aquactic centre, MSAC.
The girls' knowledge of the city was actually shocking. They knew this place but had no idea how to get there. Eventually after asking a couple of people they decided they wouldnt be able to get us there and so with my packet of sliced chicken and a Milky bar we got on the tram and headed to St Kilda beach despite the cloudy weather. BY pure coincidence, we ended up going right past the swimming pool on the tram and so got off on the next stop and went there instead and im glad we did. It was a hgue centre with a wave pool and a big slide. Every half an hour we messed about in the waves and in between with enjoyed the Olympic pool, the sauna, the steam room, the pool, the slides and the hydro therapy pool. It was a good laugh and we were in there for ages!
We got out after a couple of hours and caught the tram, which was leaking, back to Bourke Street where the girl were desperate to go for an all you can eat so we did. After that Loren's dad picked the girls up and we went back to the hostel for a nap before we went out.
After showers, we went and bought some drinks from the bottle shop and sat in the garden thing drinking them and listening to the ipod on the speakers. After a while, the Canadians, Darcy and Kyle, from our room joined us, and they are a real laugh. They were wasted. One of them went over to a girl who turned out to be from Israel and tried to chat her up....'Fuck the Palestinians.... Jews rule!!' It was hilarious. He then came back sat down for a while and then scrapped his chair back over to her making sooo much noise and then pretended like he hadnt seen her and was like 'OH well hello there!' He was so drunk but it was so funny.
After a couple of hours of drinking with them, Loren txt and we headed out to meet them. They were at a warehouse club at the docklands called Alumbra. we messed about for a while in the rain but eventually got there and it was really good! We danced and drank for ages with Heath and Loren before they left and we stayed a little longer. We ended up walking back and got in about 4am.
