We took the train back to Newtown in the early evening, and walked down King Street looking for somewhere for dinner. The first couple places we tried didn't have any tables, but after some discussion they were able to seat us at an Italian restaurant called Cicciolina. That turned out to be a great choice anyway, because dinner was just great! Nice atmosphere and decor, and delicious food.
I had a mushroom "tower", over greens and parmesan shavings with balsamico – yummy!
It was especially bittersweet for Alex, who had been here for almost 5 months, and made so many good friends, and had so many great experiences.
Goodbye, Australia! We had a REALLY good time.
