After finishing work in Australia and before returning back to rainy England for the Christmas holidays I spent a long weekend in Adelaide. Its a small city but was relaxed and busy with other Englishmen their to watch the cricket. Plenty of good pubs/hotels to explore, I saw some guys I'd met in Brisbane just the week earlier so had a few pints with them.

Not content with seeing England beat in the first test in Brisbane I was also in attendance for the 2nd test at the Adelaide Oval, which again they lost. The ground is being redeveloped and still under construction, that said it was I was impressed by it so far and there were good facilities. I had seats in the upper tier one day which had a good view, but preferred being closer to the action in the lower tier the next day.
