I like the streets of South Yarra for a quiet walk. Just a few metres away from St Kilda Road the big city feel vanishes. The buildings are nice. Sometimes you hear the kick of footy or whack of a cricket ball from Melbourne Grammar. Residents are friendly enough to say hello to on the street. There is a myraid of little lanes and alleyways. Sometimes a scene can be spoiled by some dreadfully large buildings in the background. They probably should not have been built, but I am pleased that they were.
