After Seven Mile Beach, we then moved into Byron Bay and spent one night there. It was good to sleep in a bed again. Cheeky Monkey's was the bar of choice that Wednesday night, although it was one of the only ones open. It was hilarious because it was such a touristy bar and they were doing everything they could to force a good time on you. The next day we moved on to a Budhist Retreat Center in the mountains near Byron Bay, where we sat in the rain for that night and the following day. No power, lots of leeches and a cold rain could have made it a really unenjoyable experience, but it ended up being a really good time. The group came together well, and we went through some interesting exercises. A good time was had without alcohol.
Byron Bay... such an interesting place. Tourists (British, Americans, Asians, etc.) mixed with serious hippies, surfers, and the odd homeless person really spice this place up. Our apartments were cozy, and free of James the Spider. The tv has some version of footy (soccer, aussie rules, or the two types of rugby) on at least two channels constantly. I am getting in touch with my British Commonwealth sports, and have watched more Cricket than I care to talk about. We drank plenty of bottles of expensive 5$ wine, and sampled to nightlife. We also had an interesting workshop on Sustainability, email me if you want to know more.
Now I am in Lismore Australia, at my homestays house. It is a beautiful macadamia farm in the countryside, I will upload some photos tonight. Time to shower before I go out to eat.
