Australian blokes have many things on their mind, but the two things that occupy it most are women and beer. The bloke in this picture uses Aussie ingenuity to put this little beer carrying invention together.
Then there is this stall keeper at the Glenelg markets who is appealing to the Aussie’s sense of humor by having a small “Beer And Bullshit” section at his stall. I reckon he got the attention of a fair few tourists as well.
I will have some more great shots of Glenelg, an Adelaide’s beach side resort in future posts.
Just to finish off here is a taste of one of our finest beer commercials, Tooheys.
Oh, did I mention that the commercial was banned. I don’t know why.
Adelaide has been known to host some very popular events and one of them is right around the corner. I’m talking about Clipsal 500 Adelaide 2008 which will run from 21st of Feb – 24 Feb. Adelaide is well known for putting on some great shows and even today people still rave about the times when we used to host the Grand Prix.
It doesn’t even end when the race is over, because it’s then that the party begins with the after race concert which is free to Clipsal 500 ticket holders. This year they’ve got Santana, Powder Finger, Shannon Noll and Sneaky Sound System. Check it all out at Clipsal 500 Adelaide 2008!
There are many who regard the Adelaide Oval as the most picturesque Test cricket ground in the world and it certainly has a lot of character. You can read all about it’s history at SACA History.
On this particular occasion I went to see Adelaide United play soccer against Sydney FC. I must admit that we have been playing pretty crappy of late, that and the fact that the umpiring was pretty crappy led to an Adelaide loss. No big deal as long as the Crows do well this year, and even there I have my doubts as we have lost a lot of good players.
As you can see quite a lot of spectators turned out for the match and all in all the atmosphere led to everyone having a pretty good night of it. On the way back to the car I took this shot of the city from across the River Torrens.
