Yesterday we all headed to the Thursday Mindil markets, which are held right on the beach just a short walk from our hostel. Most of the merchandise was from Bali or Thailand, and marked up four or five times, but it didn't seem to deter the shoppers (including myself). Even if you were not there to shop or eat (there was a plethora of international food stalls) the quality of professional buskers did not disappoint.
In the short time that I have been here Darwin has grown on me
When I leave Darwin I will have to say goodbye to some of my long term travelling friends that I have known since Perth. And of course this will be the end of the Tasmanian Trio that was Jorgen, Dominik and myself. I'm sure that I'll see many of these great people again though, either further along my travels or when I get back to Europe. The more I travel the smaller the world seems to get!
