Hi everyone!!

Just to give you some news from down under.
I'm staying in Childers as I said before. It's a little town, looks a bit like Gympie where I've been the first time I came to OZ. Basically it's got one street with shops and bakeries and stuff like that and there are 3 pubs and there is the caravanpark I'm staying at. Life in Childers is very ... repetetive! I work at an avocado-farm (4th job here in Childers) and every morning I get up at 5 o'clock to get the bus at 5.50 that drives us to the shed where we start working at 6.30 am (good thing about getting up so early is that I never miss the sunrise!!). We pack the avocado's for about 10h a day and half an hour after we get back the sun sets again and it gets (freezing) cold again!
WE sleep with three ppl a room and I've got some great roomies, so I'm happy. We usually don't work sat and sun so on friday- and saturday-evening we often have "spoon"parties. When my roomie gets a bit drunk she can't pronounce 'goon' (the very cheap wine for anyone that hasn't encountered it yet) anymore and calls it "spoon" ... therefore "spoon"party! Anyway here are some pics...

I haven't done much else here and I'm leaving the 5th or 6th of August to join Celien in Brisbane so we can start travelling together up north!!

I will keep you up to date!
catch ya later
