Rain Rain and more Rain in the good ole Rainforest
Sep 04, 2007
. well, I bought some magazines and books and read them on the street whilst Tui went from shop to shop and tried on every single bikini to find the perfect one; oh and we had Pizza and spent some time on the beach. I'm not complaining, it was a good trip. We got to go grocery shopping and stocked up heaps on well everything. Since there are no shops where we are; when we get the chance to go shopping you gotta buy as much as you can fit in to the fridge, freezer and pantry. Well, thats about it for Cape Trib, Pictures are up so go browsing. This place has been interesting, from our Generator that just stopped working for over 2 weeks, so we were constantly plunging in and out of darkness. Because Cape trib has no power lines everybody runs on generators. Functional alcoholics living here in the rainforest. It was preety crazy. Most of the people there had gone to cape trib on vacation and just didn't leave. There isn't enough accomodation for everybody so most of the people have to live in crappy shared accomodation at the various resorts or literally live in shacks in the middle of the rainforest. See, the whole area is national rainforest so no new buildings are allowed to go up
No, I haven't left Cape Tribulation, all the deadly bugs and such still do stand a very good chance of catching me and injecting me with some extremley deadly poison and then feeding me to there young. Or, just catching me and feeding on me and maybe the young as well. But, Tui and I did head down to Port Douglas for our two days off and since it meant someplace new figured I would put it down. Well, since that is the first exciting thing that has happened I will start with our Port Douglas trip. Port Douglas is a little blink of a town; blink and you will miss it. It is pureley a tourist town for people to stop, shop and rest before either continuing further north or back down south. It isn't a very exciting town, but since it had been about 6 weeks since we got up here to Cape Tribulation and the furtherst we had gone was the half hour walk through crocodile infested waters to the IGA Express store where everything is about 3 times more expensive then if you bought it in town. So, what did we do in Port Douglas??
