    Het is alweer tijd voor het zesde blog en dat betekent dat we al over de helft van onze tijd in Australië zitten. We hebben al zoveel moois gezien en gedaan in deze zes weken, dat het veel langer voelt. Gelukkig zit onze tijd er nog niet op en mogen we nog veel meer zien van dit geweldige land!

    ... few hours wandering a myriad of market stalls and shops. The original Kuranda markets were still operating with their hippy culture and style together with the more trendy markets with touristy knicknacks and art. A beautiful photograph, about 2 metres by say 1 metre was priced at $3,200 but the salesman would let me have it for $3,000 if I bought today. I declined explaining I no way of getting it home!
