A walk in the city

Adelaide (ˈædəleɪd) is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of South Australia, and is the fifth-largest city in Australia. Adelaide has an estimated population of more than 1.28 million.
Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate .
 Oh, these beautiful colonial style houses...

 Some odd plants near the city zoo. I don't know if it's worth visiting it. Tigers and wolves are  probably the main attraction. 

Shop/gallery. The handicrafts are a bit different from those in Lithuania. But not too much though...

 All the succulents! Everywhere! Prepare for many more pictures in future.

 Adelaide hills in the horizon.

 We saw an Adelaide rosella with a misshaped beak. The beak has grown so long it's touching the birds chest! The poor thing was eating with it's head on a side. We even called the animal rescue. And they reacted very fast. But despite the deformed beak the bird could fly just fine and we never saw it again.
And here is a healthy Eastern rosella.
Omg! Look at these aeoniums! Gigantic!
