Adios Australia/// Goodbye Australia


Adios Australia. Parece mentira pero el momento ha llegado, y es ahora cuando parece de verdad que hemos empezado nuestro viaje. La visita a Darwin ha sido especutacular: mucha fauna y naturaleza y, (a los que conoceis a Brad no os sorprendera) alguna fiesta que otra. Hemos visto, ademas de Darwin, el Parque Nacional de Litchfield y Kakadu. Esta zona tropical de Australia esta pasando por la epoca de lluvias, y si tenia alguna duda de porque le llamas asi a los meses de Noviembre a Abril, se me ha borrado en un instante: que tormentas, gotas de agua del tamano de limones (le prometi a Andrew que no exageraria!je!), y que "frio" (aqui le llaman "frio" a 30 grados con 90% de humedad). Gracias Brad por ser un guia de lujo. Esta foto se la dedicamos a el ( y a todos a los que pidieron la foto de Cocodrilo Dundee): son unas pequenas montanas de termitas, muy comunes por toda la zona norte de Australia...

Over 80% of Kakadu was closed off due to the rains of the wet season and still we saw snakes, spiders, kangaroos, dingoes, birds galor, lizards, wild horses and water buffalo. This park, which is the size of Switzerland, is amazing!

Brad took us around in the mighty land cruizer, which meant that there was no river to deep to get to some of the amazing natural and cultural sites of the park. The picture of Brad and I standing near a termite mound is actually in Litchfield NP, an adjacent park. The NT is littered with them, which means that the termite population well and truely out number Teritorians by at least a billion to one.

Other pursuits while in Darwin inclued getting ropped into a strip tease with another 10 unfortunate male souls (I made it to the final!), having a few too many down the Vic (Brad's local watering hole) and the inevitable hangover, attempting to make swimming in amazing waterholes and under waterfalls and of course catching up with Brad. I can recommend him as a guide to anyone out there, except for any fathers that want to keep their daughter's sin free.

Hi Andrew and Eider,
Glad to hear that life is still a luxury - good sandwich. In the months to come you will probably dream of such luxury. Have fun. Love mum and steve
