Reason 139 Why We Like Australia

When asking at the hostel desk whether or not it was allowed to bring alcohol to a beach popular for sunset viewing we were told:

"Actually, i highly recommend it."

Off to see a local cricket match today (Brian has made sure that I've seen footy (Aussie rules), rugby union, and cricket live. Add in all the saltwater crocs we ran into in Kakadu and I'm feeling like a real Aussie). For those of you who don't know cricket, think baseball with less action. Zzzzzzzzzzz. At least it'll give me an opportunity to work on writing some of the blog entries and other to-dos).

We've been chilling in Darwin for a few days after our Kakadu trip (and yes, hopefully we will get entries on that and the Outback posted soon). We highly recommend the Darwin museum. It's free and has lots of great and informative exhibits on natural history, wildlife, and aboriginal art. We don't recommend going to see a movie here. It's extortionate highway robbery. The Mindil Beach Markets are pretty cool too.Tomorrow night we take the red eye to Brisbane and head north up the coast on Monday. Once we've figured out our plans we'll let you know.

Hopefully more soon.

Ahhhh, the difference between living in a country founded by puritians and living in a country founded by criminals.
