Been in Darwin for what seems an eternity now but it could be coming to an end soon. We are more than likely going to be on a flight out to the Tiwi Islands next week to do some serious work for 6 weeks.

The Tiwi Islands are just north of Darwin (13 minute flight) and usually bloody expensive to visit. You have to visit on a tour and a 1 night stay on the island costs $550! We however will be getting a free flight, free accommodation ($80/night) and free food! All we have to do in return is prune a few hectares of trees. Best bit is all the money we make will go straight into the bank as there is nothing to do on the islands meaning there is no way for me to spend anything! Perfect to restock the bank balance!

On another note, Antti is leaving for Sydney today so we went out to the Vic again last night. It was a great night, we all got really drunk and I managed to lose the phone I bought last week! Not going to buy a new one as it seems a waste of time seeing as there is no signal on the Tiwi Islands and I will be leaving Aus straight after getting back to Darwin. Just have to go back to using Skype again.

I'll keep you posted on what's going on for the next few weeks and hopefully there will be some Internet access on the island so I can keep up-to-date on world events!
