To celebrate we went to Black Bettys. This is a nightclub, and on Wednesday nights it is student/backpackers night. We paid $10 to Billabong and then we were on their beer card, which essentially means unlimited beer all night. Last week we went and it was pretty quiet, but this week we met a load of new people from the hostel.
Today, despite our hangovers, we have been to STA travel to change our flights about, and then we went to Kings Park. It is a massive park, 15 mins walk from the city centre. Or you can get a bus or take a tram tour there. We decided to walk to clear our heads. The park itself is beautiful. There are a few walks to do, or you can take a picnic and just marvel the views. It's on a hill overlooking the city centre and the Swan river. There are also parrots that live there and fly about, and a big fountain to sit beside. Very relaxing.
Also, Graham has got a job, in Pemberton, 5hrs south of Perth. It's for 3 weeks also, pruning vines. Will have updates in 3 weeks time once we have finished our jobs.
