Greek Festival

Yesterday, we went to a mini-Greek Festival. It actually reminded David about Greece: lots of good food and lots of people. There are actually a large number of Greek imigrants in Australia, and particularly in Darwin. They were heavily tied to the pearling industry that thrived in Darwin pre-WWII. There is a big Paspaley Pearls shop on the Smith Street mall. It has this beautiful store front on ground level, with faux columns, and when you look up you find a three story tall typical example of neo-communist cement architecture. Kind of a stark contrast to each other.

Anyway, if you are interested check out this link.
