The Cup Day

Today is the Cup Day...the Melbourne Cup day. A significant event in the Australian sporting calendar every year. Horse racing has a special place in Australia and the Melbourne cup is the most important one among a many a horsing events. Its known as the "race that stops the nation" where everything halts for a couple of minutes. The public holiday in Victoria for the cup is the best thing for me though :)
