Melbourne Cup

Tuesday, 5 November, 2013

Today we head to Happy Valley Race Course to participate in the Melbourne Cup. We are a bit disappointed that there is no actual racing at Happy Valley. The guys who want to place a bet on the Cup, have to walk half way around the track.

An way, we get a nice private room in the Moon Koon restaurant. The main part eventually fills up too even though there is no racing. Popular place.
