Nothing Happens in Adelaide... But there are Toilets...

I recently survived two weeks in Adelaide. This is utterly remarkable, don't you think?! [R]adelaide has more serial killers per capita than any other city in the world (strange I know) and more violent biker gangs than the rest of Australia put together. But despite all this "Nothing happens in Adelaide." Or so I was told.

There were floods. There were fires. There was cyclone Yasi. And more floods. And more fires. And an Earth Quake. Adelaide remains. 

The O-Bahn
In fact my "to see and do" list for the town looked something like this:

1) Drink a Farmer's Union Ice Coffee
2) Ride the O-Bahn
3) Visit the botanical Gardens
4) Visit the beach
5) Walk the Torrens River Path
6) Watch Wolf Creek
7) Visit the Zoo
Farmer's Union Ice Coffee
..... nothing particularly exciting I must admit.....

But then again the ice-coffee is pretty good! And  the beach pretty spectacular ... and even if the majority of the population are murderous villains, there's still some good people about. And there's a Garden of Unearthly Delights... and a Big Day out and well... 

 Even if Adelaide had nothing else, they definitely had the best toilet of the trip so far....
