This is the most eventful trip yet! Dungog, what can I say. Phoned to book powered sites for 7-9/01/2011, no problem. Decided to leave home after a bit of work in the morning, pack The Ark, shower, lunch and off we go... so we thought! What a disaster, it had rained quite heavy for a week beforehand and The Ark had been left open so our kids could use it to sleep in over the Christmas/New Year period.

Though still fairly young, Dungog is becoming a significant platform for screen creators to watch their work.

Je prends donc le train de Newtown a Central, de Central a Newcastle, puis de Newcastle a Dungog, ou j'arrive vers 17h30 je crois (quelques heures plus tard que prevu, effectivement, j'ai pas bien compri comment fonctionnait les trains pce jour ci :P ). Arrivee a Dungog, une autre femme arrivait en meme temps. Michael nous attends dans une voiture, pour nous ammener jusqu'a l'ashram. C'est un endroit magnifique, sans voisin, juste la nature. Tout a ete mis en place pour qu'on puisse avoir le minimum confort: Une cuisine en condition pour cuisiner pour 100 personnes, des toilettes seches reparties dans plusieurs endroits du campement, des douches dans lesquelles on vient avec un saut d'eau chaude (rechauffee au dessus du feu de bois), et on rempli le recipient qui se situe au dessus ... read more
