    ... mines that the guide had personally excavated). The holes are now dug with heavy equipment, but when an opal vein is found, it is extracted the old fashioned way with a pick. We also saw the "scenic" part of Coober Pedy, a badlands area called the "Breakaways".

    ... missed them. Susan,who was managing the camp was very friendly. It was a hot evening and we decided to let her cook us a meal we could enjoy in the cool dining room.

    ... via the Moon Plains, which is like a lunar landscape and we stopped at the famous Dingo Fence. It runs 5300 km through South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. Our next stop was at the underground Serbian Orthodox Church. It is a beautiful place of worship with choir loft, stained glass windows and many wood carvings. The last stop was an underground bar for an aperitif. It as a great afternoon had by ...
