Where I stayed
Following day we headed north to the Kathrine Hot springs which were quite nice as well, there was a mud slide at the side of the springs so i took a blast of that, fun fun :) We just kept on driving though towards Dawrin, we stopped off at Edith falls where i read the croc warning signs and went for a swim in the pool :)
As we headed north you could see a load of word war 2 sites, old air strips and bases that you could visit becuase Darwin was heavily bombed by the japs and it's been ruined by cyclones the city has rebuilt its self around 5 or so times
So far in darwin its been really good, we visited the Mindil Beach market on the sunday just passed, heaps of stalls selling cuisine from all around the world, there was even a roadkill food stall selling croc, possum, wallaby ,emu, camel, kangaroo their slogan was YOU KILL IT , WE GRILL IT lol i tried the crocodile, kangaroo, possum and camel.... crocodile tastes just like chicken and camel just like beef, kangaroo is totally different and possum has a really strong taste its actually bloody disgusting i had to spit it out! We watched the sunset over the Timor Sea, the whole sky just lit up into a burning red, pretty nice :)
Darwin is a really relaxed place no stressing at all :) suits me :)
Hi all :) Just been working like a slave here 2 weeks left of it and we are finally hitting the road again, we have bought a weapon of a car..
Lifes been good in Darwin, been playing football every sunday, the vic hotel holds a 5 a side tournament on the esplande, the winning team gets a 100 dollar bar tab and a free meal off the menu, we have won it 2 weeks in a row now its good crack, playing against a whole heap of nationalities, hope to win it again this sunday :)
