Cairns Day 43

Here's a little run down of what I've been up to since moving to Cairns but this time with PICTURES!

As always, I've been going out and having fun at the bars. My newest hang out is the Woolshed where as I've mentioned before, I have a VIP card and I get cheap drinks!
Don't worry I'm not going overboard or anything...

Here are photos of my lovely room that I have to myself in the most awesome house I've lived in so far in Australia.
I got a double bed to myself and I already decorated the room slightly.

This is my "closet" which is basically a wire hanging from the ceiling in the corner of my room.

This is my favorite part of the room. What LOOKS like a REAL closet is actually just
doors drilled into the walls of the room to give the illusion there is closet space,
but there isn't.

I'm still working at that Italian restaurant Vivo:

The view you get from the kitchen, there's a beautiful beach right outside:

And the man himself, Ivo, the owner of the restaurant and my boss:

My friend Sophie is in town so we went out for dinner the other night.

She wanted Indian food but it was like 20$ a dish so we opted out for this food court where they have about 4 resturant competing, each offering a buffet style of food where you pay for the size of your dish. I was starving and took total advantange by shoving as much as I could on the plate.

I get hungry everytime I look at that pic.


Today was another beautiful day so I went by the Lagoon.

Basically it's just a fancy public swimming pool for everyone to use since the real beach in Cairns looks like this:

and the funny thing is they are right next to each other so if you face one way it looks like a resort and then behind you it's like Swamp Thing's home land.

Being such a nice day as it was, I sat under a tree in the shade and played guitar for about an hour and half until I broke one of the strings.

Thankfully, the guitar shop was nearby and I got it fixed right away and was told some tips to avoid it in the future.

Sophie just invited me to a BBQ which is perfect timing since I was going to buy groceries anyways today, so I'm off to the supermarket so by some BBQ food and cook up a storm.
