What a load of Kakadu

Im in Darwin for a few days, thats all i can bare, the humidity is at 90% and the mosquito's are out to get me!

Just spent a couple of days in Kakadu National park, swimming in waterfalls and cliff jumping into plunge pools. It is so beautiful, really tropical, rainforest's, eagles, weird bugs, the lot. We went on a crocodile spotting boat trip and tried not to squash any frogs as we walked, it is literally infested with them. Stayed in a slightly odd outback lodge where we were told not to go outside, a local had gone hunting in his helicopter after a few too many tinnies! Got to try buffalo sausage, it was ok as it goes.

Also had an Aborigine spit on my head, but apparently its a traditional welcome when you cross their land, i wasnt convinced.

Photo 6 - Dave Hart with a tan. Andy and I spent over a month in Darwin. It's very uncomfortable, I'd recomend spending the whole day asleep in an air conditioned room whenever possible.

I tried to do that but my room mate was a crazy russian guy who kept on falling asleep, naked in the bathroom. it was odd.
