The First Goths of Spring

One thing I love about travelling around Europe is marvelling at the old, old buildings here. In Australia, architecture of us White invaders only dates about 200 years old. I love seeing places that are hundreds of years old and still standing.
Also, coming from Melbourne and the Smith st./ Brunswick st. area in particular, I thought I knew about Goths.
When we first arrived here, I looked at all the Gothic architecture and thought to myself 'but, where are all the Goths?' I don't know- perhaps they are migratory, but it's Spring now and at first one or two appeared but now they're out in force.
I'm glad, I love big boots and black velvet!
