Papa mama Perth trip: Day 13 Freo

Fremantle today.

We followed a city walking map from one of the travel brochure to see bits and pieces of the city attractions.

The highlight of the day was the submarine tour from the WA Maritime Museum. It was the first day on the job for our guide, but he was a submarine engineer for 15 years, and has worked in this particular submarine that is on display.
What's really amazing about submarine is the space inside, which isn't much at all! Everything is sqeezed into tiny little space that is barely enough to work around. Three level bunked-beds were installed within the space about my height. And the toilet is so small that some big bloke can't even close the door when they are in there. :P
The submarine weight about 2500 tons, carries some 20 torpedoes which weight 2 tons and cost $4.5millions each!!

We also went to the Fremantle market for a quick stroll before it closed.
