Adelaide - What you see is not what you get....

Adelaide, not much to see on the surface but if you look hard enough you will find something wonderful. A week ago that where we found ourselves. Adelaide is no stranger to us, in fact as Mr. Coco puts it, Adelaide is to us an extension of Melbourne. While we were in Adelaide we went to our "local": Cafe Zest in Glenelg. It would have to be our fav cafe in Adelaide. The food is amazing and so is the coffee.

While we were in Adelaide we managed to go to the Fringe festival. It was the first time for us and OMG it was the best thing ever. We went to the garden of unearthly delights, and boy were we amazed. So much better then the Melbourne comedy festival. The garden was like a carival with little circus tents dotted amongst bars and rides. We saw 2 shows. The first being Felicity Ward. Only ended up seeing her after we got talking to her about if she was the person we saw at the airport a few days before. After a funny conversation we all agreed it was not her and just someone who looked like her (though Mr. Coco is convinced that it was now some other comedian). Her show at the fringe was funny and a bit odd. Not side splitting wet your pants funny, but just a nice giggle funny.

After her show and a few drinks later we went to see the half naked chef. I recommend you Google him his on YouTube. OMG he was the best thing ever. We laughed soooo much my belly was hurting. For $5 it was the best $5 ever spent. He was a cross between Jamie Oliver and the Swedish chef from the Muppets. To this day his show would have to be the most random thing I have ever seen and one of the most funniest.

We have a huge weekend this weekend so stay tuned for more.........
