We went to the races! The day started by getting up really early so that Melissa, Donna and I could all shower and get ready. We were surprisingly all ready at 9:30 like we wanted. We first went to the bottle shop to pick up some cheap champagne and then went to mcdonalds to get some breakfast! Then it took at really long time to drive to Kate and Ana's were we were meeting everyone. We got there at 10:30 and started on the champagne! maybe an hour later we called a couple taxis to come get all of us and headed to the Caulfield race course. There were THOUSANDS of people there. We first had to go through the "age verification" tent to get a wristband saying we were over 18 and allowed to drink and then we headed in. We met up with some of the girls friends and just hung out.
The line for the bars were sooo massive. And the drinks were expensive! Luckily some guys bought me and Melissa lots of drinks :) Anyways I didn't really pay attention to many of the races. I was going to bet on one but then it was like minimum $15 bet and I didn't want to lose that much money. We did watch the Caulfield Cup however. The hole day there was really fun. We met a lot of random people and took pictures with them. There were soooo many people there and most everyone was dressed up really nicely. It was cool because we don't have anything like it at home that could even compare. After the races we went back to Kate and Ana's house for a while. At about 8:30 we went to some pub but I didn't feel well from all the sun I think so I was going to head home and then Melissa ended up coming with me and we met Donna at the tram stop so we all took the tram home together. I didn't wear my shoes for the last part of the night so my feet were completely black. it was sick! Anyways it was a good experience!!! so much fun.
