Yesterday afternoon saw the running of the Melbourne Cup, a race which stops the nation. People lay bets, enter sweeps (my $1 sweep got me nowhere) and watch or listen to the race wherever they are. Most of these photos were taken in my office where the race was shown on a large screen in the conference room.
What won? 1st - Shocking, 2nd - Crime Scene, 3rd - Mourilyan. No idea what happened to Harris Tweed.
