The St Kilda festival means a lot to me as an International student and a health freak. For a start it is free and there are a lot of free exercise activities such as Zumba. I can teach Zumba and next year I would like to teach it as I am an amazing teacher. I have been teaching Zumba for a while at various gyms and all over the world.
Here it was a cold but sunny day and here I always enjoy free watermelon from Hare Krishna. How can anyone say no to free things? There was free coffee and iced tea but as usual it has too much sugar in them. And I don’t drink coffee. I am not an alcoholic but every now and then Katherine loves to have one drink. This one was a Sav Blanc and in a cute glass for a pricey $9.50. According to her it was the watered down version. We enjoyed it at the New World stage along with a live band.
We sampled the same ole sweet potato chips from Nandos and they gave the same ole vouchers that we got in the city but never used. The lines to Nandos was really long.
The cafes and bars along Acland st were filled with people drinking alcohol, but it wasn’t too bad until after 6pm. That was the time when people had dinner and then stayed to watch more of the live shows.
There were also games but we were not interested in them.
By 6pm the people started coming. Before then it was not too busy. People came by tram and by then the trams were fully packed. Even the train home was packed. Thank god we left after 6pm to go and train for the marathon.
