March 21 Blog Entry  - Ray Missman

Today we were all released on good behavior upon the City of Adelaide.
PJ and I took the electric train in to town with our host Sue RobillIard. We happened to get in the same train car as Bob and Pat Gigliari so we toured Adelaide together.
We saw the Adelaide Oval (very modern but with the famous old Victorian era scoreboard), the casino, the Market, Rundle Mall (pedestrian street, lots of buskers - one being filmed for evening news).
We then walked over to the 150-year-old Botanical Garden and ate lunch at the outdoor cafe. A Pacific Black Duck clearly could not read the sign "DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS" - because he stuck his head up between my legs to beg for food.
We finished our walkabout with a guided tour of the South Australia Museum: fossils from 3.5 billion years ago, almost the very earliest life on earth. Then Aboriginal culture, canoes, boomerangs... Opalized dinosaur skeleton, and a cloud chamber making cosmic rays visible - the Universe talking to us.

We all met in the evening with the Adelaide Club at the Royal Hotel - good food and good visiting.
