December Holiday with Lilly and Jeff, Part 1

My sister and brother in-law came to visit us over the holidays.  It had been 16 months since we had seen each other.  We had a wonderful time visiting and touring around Australia.

We began our visit in Melbourne.  Uri, the girls and I travelled down by train the day before Lilly and Jeff were to fly in.  I hadn't been to Melbourne yet - saving it for just this visit.  The city was decorated for Christmas setting us in the mood.  We had dinner in Chinatown, saw the street art and spent a few hours in the famous Chloe's room.  All this before Lilly and Jeff arrived.

Melbourne's Young & Jackson hotel is home to the Chloe painting.  Painted in Paris in 1875, it arrived in Melbourne in 1880.  Many men and women have raised a glass to the lady and said, "Chloe, here's luck!".
