I drove down to Melbourne this weekend via Canberra and the strangest thing i noticed was the lack of people. It seems like there is a people to building ratio of 1/10. Its like this beautiful and harmonious city of very well planned trees, buildings and sports grounds without people. I feel like i saw more birds and wildlife even than people. This is the perfect place to go if you just want to be by yourself and have your space so i guess i understand now what the attraction is for some people. I felt very zen while in Canberra which might also be partially attributed to the way everything is symmetrically planned out in an almost obsessive compulsive da vinci code kind of way. Here are some trees, buildings and empty spaces.
