Brisbane 2013 did not change much. At least not from a small birdy perspective and not within a returning span of a year. Probably some developers would object to this statement, but if take into the account the relative proportions to the vast spaces within the Australian island continent, the changes done or beautified would be regarded as the changes done on one ants nest in the huge Alpine forests as seen from the perspective of mountain passenger.
Prior to European settlement, the Brisbane area was inhabited by the Turrbal and Jagera people. They knew the area that is now the central business district as Mian-jin ~ “place shaped as a spike”.
I just love Brisbane city! Have fallen in love with it for the first time at the first sight when we visited last year, 2012, and have fallen in love with it again, reunited, at the second sight, upon our return in September 2013. Brisbane we love you dearly!
