Is how I can sum up the last few days - has been crazy but really cool. Very tanned already and the people are hilarious on the trip - have made lots of friends. Haven't had a beer free day yet - don't think that is going to happen somehow. Currently in Coober Pedy, SA, opal mining town, pretty unreal. Everything is under ground! Have had no cell reception for last three days, but it has been peaceful. It is mind bogglingly vast and arid out here. Only land and sky, and that's it.
