... towards the Great Western Tiers again, Tasmanian Police had set up an early morning breathalyzer station. Very early for testing, unless someone had tipped them off to our presence. Anyway, I didn't hear that anyone had any dramas, so perhaps a waste of their time after all that.

My next break will see me visit the Masai Mara and Amboseli National Parks in Kenya, then a road trip in Namibia, through Etoysha then down the Skeleton Coast, with Laura. Needless to say, i’m bloody excited! Look forward to plenty of animal photos and adventures from the aussie/congo girls in Namibia!
