I know that Hawaii is not North America, and I don't disagree with you. It's just that I've always seen it listed as part of North America because it's one of the 50 states.

I love these aerials because they give me a better idea of how Sydney is laid out. I think I like Melbourne's skyline better though because of the way it's configured. I always enjoy seeing it during the Australian Open. Men's Final a little more than 2 hours away.

Yep, Sydney is definitely the more chaotic of the two. I suppose that to an extent, it has to be messy to deal with all the bays and inlets on the harbour. Both have their charms, but Melbourne is definitely easier to get around!

Nice, I didn't know of Hagana until now.
Looks like a good place to retire.

Great pictures of Melbourne. I love this city. And Eureka Tower is one of my favorite residential skyscrapers in the world.
