food aside, what really tripped me out at the filo fiesta?

royal exhibition building

the royal exhibition building.

yep, this world heritage site-listed building completed in 1880, making it the largest building in australia and the highest building in melbourne at the time. 135 years of existence. that, in itself, is amazing!

if you don’t already know, i love old houses and buildings. i especially love visiting ancestral houses. that’s my kind of high. so please excuse me for staring stupidly at the ceiling of the great hall while the filipino acts were going on. i couldn’t help myself.

with this kind of majestic architecture all around you, could you?
