Darwin and Beyond

For the past two weeks I've been in wonderful Darwin, NT. -That's Northern Territory for all you civillians out there. After Emilia's car broke down indefinitely- as in Kaput, no more, a bare husk of a car for us to sleep in- we've been spending our nights at Lake Alexander. It's a place where Vannies go to live it up. Every night there are tens of vans parked by the public toilets there. Pumping loud music, utilising the free BBQ's, -at lest that's what I've been doing. At night, you're not allowed to stay there in your van to sleep, however, if you drive 500m around a fence, there's a dirt field where EVERYONE goes. Its a mecca, so to speak. So after two weeks looking for work, living off rice and trying to find a car, Emilia and I are just about ready to leave Darwin. Now, if you'll excuse me, we have a meeting with a prospective addition to our group in ten minuites. Its because the Frenchies left for Vietnam today that I think we're having success. We just couldn't leave eachother until one of us left the country, it seems.
