Running out of money but not fun




So, last night was a fun adventure, desperately hungry but we couldn't leave our room until we figured out how much money we had left for the day for our big dinner. Well, as it turns out we had $33. That sounds like a lot if you are in the states, sure just go down to a mexican place and eat like a king for that amount of money. But here in OZ stuff is expensive and their dollar is stronger than ever, so we walked around 2 miles trying to find this "strip" of all sorts of restaurants in North Hobart. Well, there is no "strip", actually there wasn't even anything open. It felt like a scene out of 28 days later, just wind and a couple cats roaming about. So we walked to a place called Salamanka and found TONS of people, loads of restaurants YES we found the mecca! Wait, no we didn't, because in this Salamanka place everything is 25 per meal and up and all italian or some other variation of Italian. We walked tired and hungry from place to place, feeling defeated until we stumbled upon Korean! I have been pestering Megan to find some Pho (beef noodle soup as they call it here) and we found it here in Salamanka.
