Just some stuff I want to share with you

Birdsville

Today we will not fly, but will have a look around in the world famous town of Birdsville. Since it can be very hot here, we decided to have an early walk, have breakfast and then on to the local museum. And so we did. Here’s an impression:

The local museum is for sale by the way. So if you are thinking about leaving the big city and move to a place where there live only about 60 – 80 people and run a museum: this is your change!

Oh, by the way did I mention that there are a lot of flies out here? Well, there are. Look at the shirt of Janice after about 5 minutes walking outside:

In the afternoon we didn’t do much. It was too hot, so I decided to do some work on my website. Well, it turned out to be a very frustrating afternoon. I paid about 16.50 Australian dollars (that’s about 8.25 euro) for each hour of Internet connectivity, but most of the time the connection was so poor that nothing seemed to work. During the 4 hours that I had access to the Internet, I managed to get 6 mails out.

And I promised I would come back with some reference of where we are. Well here it is:

For the evening Clare organized a visit to the “Big Reds” to watch sunset and enjoy a glass of wine. This turned out to be a very pleasant evening. We had good fun in the dunes and the views were spectacular. The pictures don’t do justice to the real thing, so again: you have to come out here and see for yourself.

We finished the day with a nice meal and then all went to bed. Tomorrow we move on to the next place to visit: Coober Pedy, the opal centre of the world (well at least of Australia).
