West End

I took myself into West End today while Michael and Helen were at work. Although some of the shops were good (it has a lot of charity shops) the atmosphere was slightly disconcerting. I now know that it is a major place for tramps to congregate and is seen as one of the aboriginal living areas of Brisbane which may explain all the funny looks all the Caucasians were getting! I bought the sixth Harry Potter book (Harry Potter and the half-blood prince) which I read for the remaining part of the day.
I have been waiting, just like many others, for the next book to come out and it, like the prior ones, was fantastic so much so that I couldn’t put it down!
I met Michael coming home from work and we went to see the Southbank Arts and Craft market. It was really cute, reminding me of French markets. The sun was setting and the market was full of people, which gave it a really lively atmosphere. We stopped off for a drink and then walked home. Michael went to bed at 6pm as he was feeling ill and tired. Hopefully he will feel better in the morning.
