Friday & Saturday
We got a flight out yesterday and arrived in Brisbane last night. We are not losing any time in Brisbane because the train ride would have taken more than a day. We went out for dinner last night near our hotel and had an early night. Had breakfast at Queen St. mall today, and arranged to take a city tour. We went to Mount Coot-Tha and we could see all over the city. Th driver showed us where the floods were along the Brisbane river. Some of the buildings aren't opened yet but they look okay from the outside. One of the riverside restaurants floated down the river (we saw that on tv). Saw original convict built building from the 1830's and many other old state buildings. Stopped at Riverside Market and had lunch. On our way back to the hotel we picked up some food and I cooked dinner in our kitchenette. The food was about $25.00, that would have been around $90.00 in a restaurant. At McDonaaald's now for the free wifi.
