Where I stayed
As my last day in Alice, I really wanted to visit the "school of air"
After that, I decided to go for a walk and see what I can find for work in my field. Went to a few government agencies and some non-profit ones. Got some emails and some connections. I would really like to come back and work in Alice Springs. It would be really cool to wor in remote communities actually. However Alice has DASA which is non profit but really does the same services as VIHA (back in Canada). They have a detox, sobering centre, recovery houses, outreach team, groups, counselling,etc.... Another one is a catholic one but you dont need to be religious and that is a good one. Like in the norh in Canada, they have similar thing as to the isolation pay. So I got a lot of good info. I dont think its a problem to find a job here but the housing is. Not much of it, so that would be a little challenging if I come back, which I really want too.
Anyway, kept walking, listening to my ipod until someone tapped on my shoulder, a guy, nice guy :). Asked me about accomodation and told him to go the YHA. Later we went to see a movie called "its complicated", romantic comedy, really good! SO funny! Then went for a drink and back to the hostel where we chatted until 1am or something. Really sweet guy, great date and a great way to spend my last night in Alice.
