A Little Like Home

27 Mar

We went to the Northland Shopping Centre today, which is an actual mall, the first one I’ve been to in Australia. It was huge and mostly similar to US malls except that it had 2 grocery stores in it and was closed at 5:30. But it was a quick bus ride from the La Trobe campus and it’s open later on other nights. We went to the mall to see The Hunger Games movie. I liked it, I loved the books. Rob thought it was “pretty good.” Like most book adaptions I wish it could have included more but then it would be a 17 hour movie. Movies here are really expensive, a Friday or Saturday show is $22 a person. But the major theater chain here has super saver Tuesday and it was only $11 each. That’s much more palatable and we might even see 3 movies this year, gasp!
