What a drive! 700km's of almost nothing. Mile after mile of desert and grasslands, ending at Coober Pedy, a small Opal Mining comunity burrowed into the limestone of the desert.

Hot! Its 39 degrees and its 9pm. Thankfully I located the underground hotel - the rammed earth and semi underground construction makes for some nice and cool rooms.

I was DELIGHTED to hear that Ayer's Rock is another 730km drive tomorrow. Woah!
