We went back to Canberra this weekend. Our intention for going back was to watch the Brumbie's play a home game, but it turned out it was also Canberra's 100th birthday weekend (the Brumbie's game was at home for this reason). This meant there was all sorts of awesome stuff on, such as Enlighten.
We decided to try the train to Canberra. It had a lot more room, and was more comfy, but we're not sure about the price. Anyhoo, taking the train meant we arrived at 10:30pm on Friday night. We were picked up and drove to Enlighten to decide if we wanted to have a walk around that night or the next. I'm not sure who decided, but somehow we ended up walking around that evening. It was pretty awesome. The Art museum, National Portrait museum, Questicon and Library were all lit up for the occasion. My favourite was the Art museum. For the 100th birthday year of Canberra, the museum has been exhibiting Toulouse-Lautrec artwork. For Enlighten they had pieces of artwork from the collection lit up on the outside of the building. I thought it was gorgeous, and really enjoyed it. The other light shows were a bit too 'modern'. Some of them were weird computer generated bug stuff...weird. It was a nice evening though.

Here are some of my favourite parts of the Art museum. :)
