We are in Alice Springs and it's hot! That's what I'm talking about! We've just landed (bit of a rough one actually) and are in the YHA in town with Helen's parents and brother and sister. We'll be around for about six days, checking out the sights and sounds as well as Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kjata Juta and Kings Canyon. This is Australia at its rawest and most barron - most things are dying, dead or dried out - even the kangeroos only come out at night!
So what's Alice like!? Dunno really yet - we need to check it all out and get involved. The taxi driver's accent was as harsh as the desert itself - he had lots of stories to tell - been here 25 years etc etc...
Enjoy the photos coming up in the next couple of weeks - they should be really good.
We haven't had many messages recently!! :-(!!! So drop one to us so we know you were checking up on us!!
All the best - see you all soon.
Lots of love from Helen and Gareth x x x
