Stopped for one more night in Cavanaghs Hostel in Darwin, waiting around for my delayed Kakadu trip. The weather is stunning up here, and it's meant that the pool side has been packed with sunbathers. I've moved into a cheaper 16-bed dorm which is a bit of a shit-hole, but it's an all male dorm, which unsurprisingly I dont complain about. It even inspired some poetry:

It's hard being gay,
In a dorm full of boys.

A child's mind,
In a room stacked with toys.

Boxers shorts, bottoms and burly delight,
Masculine smells, a woman might fright.

I feel like a spy,
As I chat, smile, no lie.

But I can't stop the glance,
Of my wandering eye.

Ok, it's no Yeats, but it passes the time.

I dont think I'll ever forget this one sight .....

He wandered in,
As I unpacked my bag.
Wearing only his trunks,
And his mighty swag.
My blood didn't know,
To go up or go down.
But settled itself,
In an unwanted frown.
Why couldn't I say:
"Hello, How's your day?"
Instead of reacting,
So terribly gay.
But now we
don't speak,
The moment did pass.
Thought I still steal a peek,
At his fabulous ass.

Popped down to the famous Mindel Beach night markets to snack on the amazing variety of international food and watch the sunset. Check out the photo of the RoadKill Cafe "You Kill It, We Grill It!" - lovely
