Let me see if I can help you on the Bad front.

Also, the building in the background with the balconies is the hotel I stayed at when I came to Melbourne to see U2 in 2006 before I moved down here. Fucking handy to the gigs! Didn't even plan it that way - just good luck.
I would imagine that Lonsdale St does intersect with a tram-equipped street at some point...

We were in a hotel right on Spencer St at that intersection... that was awesome. And planned

Oh, and the last of the tram photos I uploaded in my latest batch.



Definitely one of my favourite tram photos. A D2 on the LaTrobe Street bridge with the Melbourne CBD in the background.

I did try that, but I broke it when I asked it to show me a map of where the IMAX is. It suggested I go to Whitepages (or Yellowpages, same diff), and I looked up the entry for the Museum... NO MAP. Maps of Scienceworks at Spotswood, maps of the Immigration museum, but not the main bloody one.

ARGH.

Maybe if I search for the Carlton Gardens....

Spencer, William, Elizabeth, and Swanston all do. Maybe Spring; I know the line around there does something funky though and I'm never in that part of the city.

But no matter what, none of them are equipped as a terminating point! So who knows. It cracked me up. I like to spot odd destination boards/route numbers.

Wow. I think we were in the same place.

No, there just happened to be a totally different large crowd of people in pens hanging around when I took that...

Can't see (m)any obvious U2 t-shirts, so it could be true!

Here's just a regular suburban street, a couple of minutes from my place.

Wouldn't surprise me really, I imagine there were plenty of U2 fans staying there.

My mother didn't go to the gig but said she could hear it from her room.

It's all the wind. You should see the places where the wind speed dies down and all the suspended leaves/rubbish fall out...


I kid.
