I have three words to describe this place ugh, yuck and blah! Its here purely to ship our comodities to the Asian markets and nothing else. The three caravan parks are all full by lunchtime and we are in one which is right between the airport, the trainline and the major highway. Sleeping was impossible last night. We have tried to sight see but there not much on offer and we have had no joy trying to get our gear repaired and back on the road. I guess this just makes Happy Hour more worthwhile!! On a positive note the weather is fine and sunny.
We have a BHP tour of the port facilities tomorrow a.m. Then we will move on to Indee Station and then the National Parks which everyone is raving about. Seems anyone can walk into a job any time here but getting accommodation is another thing all together. A small unit here in this CP rents for $1,000 a week PLUS you pay your own power bill extra! Cant really add any extra to this so will hopefully have lots of positive news and lovely photos for our next blog. Its been great receiving replies to these entries and trust you aren't all freezing down south.
