Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Ready Please Mister Music
These two musos (Australian slang for someone who plays a musical instrument)
entertained the crowds at the Queen Vic.
The traditional Bolivian music they played was lively and toe-tapping.
The muso on the left is playing the Quena - the traditional flute of the Andes.
Under his arm is a Charango, a small South American stringed instrument of the lute family.
The chap on the right as well as strumming a guitar, is playing a Zampoña - an Andean panflute. Named for its connection with the rustic Greek god Pan, the pan flute is usually made from bamboo or giant reed (Arundo donax).
The young lady was selling CD's.
I liked the bright colours of the
traditional Bolivian blanket -
known as "Saddle" blankets.
