Tras tres dias de viaje eterno llegamos a Darwin, dormimos, y empezamos otro tour a Kakadu de dos dias.
En Australia todo es grande, las distancias, los camiones, los termiteros (mirad la foto!como 5metros!)...y los cocodrilos!que miedito!nos hartamos de verlos en el Mary River...y cuando te cuentan que encima pueden saltar y levantar sus cuerpecitos de una tonelada unos cuatro metros, pues como que no te arrimas tanto al borde del barco. Cuando llueve mucho se los encuentran hasta en el supermercado. En fin, la fauna del lugar no deja de sorprenderme.

Tras averia en el autobus/camion de la que salimos airosos gracias a un fetu mecanico en el grupo, llegamos a Kakadu donde disfrutamos dos dias de bano en bano en lagunas tropicales (bueno, ellos, porque yo paso de que me pille un cocodrilo) y de unas pinturas rupestres bastante interesantes.

Mas camping, mas barbacoa australiana, mas bocatas...Rick esta tercero en el ranking de guias despues de Jason y Sauce (el number one).

Un dato curioso. En Australia hay una franja horaria de media hora menos...me explico, entre Darwin o Alice Spings y Sydney hay media hora de diferencia. Ein? lo que no pase en este pais....

We finally arrive in Darwin after a long three day drive. We leave to Kakadu the following morning.
Everything is big in Australia. Distances, trucks, termite mounds (have  a look at the picture!)...and also crocodiles!We went to visit them at the Mary River...they are  so cute! when you hear that they can even jump four metres with their one ton body you tend to back a little form the edge of the boat. They've even been seen in supermarkets in heavy rain seasons. This country is just crazy!
We make it to Kakadu after a bus break down in the middle of nowhere...thankfully there was an italian mecanich in the group and he managed to fix it! two days of refreshing baths in different lagoons ans waterfalls and enjoying the aboriginal paintings. Phil discovers a weird species of spider that apparently blinks her eyes at you when you look at her (or something like that...)
More camping, more australian barbercue, more sandwiches...Rick is third in our guide ranking, after Jason and Sauce (the number one!)

One more interesting thing about Australia. There's half hour difference between Darwin and Alice and Sydney. How weird is that?!
