As we approached Adelaide SA (Southern Australia, not South Africa), the Aussies were all lamenting about the fact that it was Good Friday, a national holiday, and that nothing would be open for viewing.
There were rumors that the beloved Central Market would open because the revenue brought by a large cruise ship would benefit the city.
It was a very quiet day. Few people were on the streets. The Central Market remained closed. The fast-moving tour bus took us to Gleneig, a place of respite for residents of Adelaide when they want to get away from the downtown area.
The modern version of the historical GLENEIG TRAM runs the 10K from Adelaide, offering an easy way to escape the city.
The ferris wheel in Gleneig was not running, because it was such a quiet day.
I might have been tempted to ride in one of these!
The following are photos of Adelaide taken from a fast-moving tour bus.
A lot of the architecture contains European elements.
