Uluru - Wednesday - Oct 1

I wasn't feeling any better but was more sensible this time. Don't try anything. I stayed home while Cathie and the kids visited the Olgas. They had a great time. I read Bryce Courtney's Brother Fish.

In the evening Hannah and I headed to the Rock to see the sunset. It was spectacular. Everything that people say it is and more. I would have loved to have been here well. But it was wonderful to have come at all. Driving back in Peter and Vini's jeep I explained to Hannah, 'It's kind of an Australian dream: driving at high speed in the desert at sunset in a 4WD, with Ayres Rock in the background and someone to share it with.' It was nice.
