Bendigo weekend

On my 2nd weekend living down in Melbourne I went to Bendigo a big city north of Melbourne just over an hour away by train. Much the same distance as Newcastle is to Sydney. Why, I was hooking up Michael & Raul, who had flew down for the week-end.
They were both down because of the "Bendigo queer film festival" and to make things fun Raul is a board memeber of the festival so we got to meet plenty of people.

Raul has been coming down to Bendigo for about five years now and has a close connection with the gay community of Bendigo.

We managed to see many film in the two days we were there. The day before Melbourne was having a heatwave but the weather conditions so changed that weekend, so it was a good excuse to snuggle up and watch movies, instead of being out in the cold.

Apart from movies we went out to bars and checked out the night life though that Saturday night I did come down with a cold and stayed in. I had been running myself down all March and just needed some sleep. Michael and Raul went to the after party for film festival, it seems every year the crowd gets younger and youger at this party. Is it more of a cause we are getting older and wanting to be 21 again.

Above is a great picture of the boys (Raul and Michael) we were at the gardens on a lazy Saturday afternoon. On the way home we stopped into the small country town Kyneton. There is some great place to eat here. Made it back to Melbourne mid afternoon so we walked around St Kilda for a while then drove into the city for a bit to eat in Carlton. Then giving the boys are big hug and sending them on there way home again.
