You can't be an Australian without knowing that the first Tuesday in November is the Melbourne Cup. It's not just a horse race, but it is an event that everyone throughout the nation stops to watch - in Melbourne, it's even a public holiday! Of course, at work we joined in the festivities with a glass (or two) of bubbly and a very tasty afternoon tea.
Guess who won the sweep? Not only did I receive the prize for first place, but also won third place! Not bad for a race that lasts a mere few minutes.
