Before leaving Alice, I took a Didgeridoo lesson. The Didge is an Aboriginal instrument made from a young tree thats been hollowed out by termites. For a seemingly simple piece of wood, in the hands of a good player it can produce some very interesting sounds. I was pretty good at the Didge, maybe I'll buy one.
Anyway, here's a disgusting story. One evening when I was sharing a four-bed dorm with some fellow travellers, one of the girls (who refused to stop talking to me) told me that she hadn't brushed her teeth in four days, and had been kissing some guy the night before.
What's that by the side of the road?
Yes, it's a 5m (15ft) high termite mound, with Dianne, Nance, and myself in front of it!
A typical early morning breakfast at a Sheep and Cattle station in Boulia.
Followed by a morning hike through the middle of nothingness.
We made a stop at Millstream Falls.
And Porcupine Gorge.
A bus trip isn't complete without some sort of breakdown.
