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!!
anyway, can't wait to leave this place in three weeks with loads of money!!!
I will keep you up to date!
catch ya later
