 Charity Ball

Day 542
Melbourne, Australia
2nd October 2005
Tonight I went to a Young Professionals Charity Ball at the Melbourne Aquarium. The event was to support four charities: the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, beyondblue, Child Wise and Oxfam Australia.

There were bands, food and wine over three levels with all the fish on view. Normally you need to decorate a hall but this place was already done with some of the most amazing fish on display. Imagine dancing with sharks swimming over your heads in a glass tunnel, AMAZING. Also a car which had been converted into a fish tank, no one dared attempt to open the car door but I image they had that covered. The only worrying thing was the fish they served whilst fish swimmed over your heads, it all seemed so wrong but its rude not to at least try everything once.

This is a picture of me in the jaws of a very large shark. As summer is nearly upon us the events are coming thick and fast, Thursday is Spiegeltent, more to follow on this but if you can not wait click here
