last night just before sunset we got picked up from our hotel to go on what was called the 'sounds of silence' dinner. there was probably 50 or 60 people went to this.
we drove out to the bush, no houses nothing. after a very bumpy ride as we weren't even on a proper road we pulled over where this guy was standing, he was the host and led us up to an area where this guy (hunk) was playing the didgeridoo then waiters served us champagne and canapes. the guy told us about the hisory of the didgeridoo and some stories. the canapes were kangaroo and crocodile. loves the croc ones, bit like chicken but more chewy.
then as the sun was setting we walked down the hill where there were several tables laid out with white tablecloths wine glasses etc. and a big campfire. we sat sown to dinner as the sun set. we had more croc, kangaroo, it was all so yum.
after the main course they put out all the candles so it was pretty dark and an astronomer guided us through all the constellations and the zodiac signs. really well done. then he had telescopes set up where you could have a closer look. it was great you could see so much.
pudding came next, far too much but i managed it.
it was a wonderful evening. a definite recommendation if you're out this way.
so we're leaveing Ayers rock this morning.
next entry from Perth.
