   Merry Christmas from Adelaide, Australia.


   Yiro is the term used in Australia.
   I was told that Melbourne has the most Greeks outside of Greece.  After
WWII, they came in droves.
   I stayed right by Melbourne University.  Unfortunately, it was closed.
All I needed was half a day for Yiro and Milk Bar.
   Sorry about that.
