I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

A recent article about Laneways in Adelaide triggered memories for me of a discovery I made a couple of months ago. While wandering the back streets of the South West corner I decided to go to the Central Market, and suddenly found myself in Little India - a place for all things Indian in Adelaide.
I was surrounded by a small group of colourful shops selling Indian goods - spices, music and videos, clothing and food. My nostrils were tantalised by the rich smell of cloves and other spices on the breeze, while traditional Indian music filtered distinctly from one of the shops. Brightly coloured clothing fluttered like red rags to a bull.
The cluster of Indian shops in Market Street was almost a mirror of Chinatown on Moonta St, and struck me as something that would be great for Adelaide. We need more niche clusters of shops, like Rundle Street once was for electronic and scientific goods near Synagogue Place.
Such a quaint little cultural find. Your observation and obvious love of a previous Adelaide, and hope for a renewed and more interesting and diverse Adelaide, shines ever through. Viva La Adelaide! Let the culturally diverse version through and nurture it, all.
