The chessboard is etched in the pavement on a big corner in the city in Melbourne and sometimes has giant chess pieces on it with people playing. In fact it often used to, but rarer now – this photo I took is years old. This is perfect for my Melbourne list and I want to do it. I’ve investigated how to get access to the giant pieces – all I need now is to learn to play – and choose a playing partner.
My dad gave me my first lesson and it was overwhelming. I have a lot to learn!
