Townsville's only attraction
Still in Townsville, water not receded yet. Not holding my breath.
Had entertaining day. Phoned greyhound quite early to be told to keep dreaming. They'd think about setting off tomorrow. Phoned the hostel I'd stayed at for the previous 3 nights to get moaned at. How dare I try and book a room just in case the bus doesn't run. Did explain to the prick that I hadn't booked anything till I was certain to be stuck this miserable hole (didn't use that phrase, though more his language so probably should have done) so I actually wanted the room. Even so, I was given 4 hours to come and pay otherwise he'd give my room away. It's not like anyone new can get into Townsville, blocked off from all sides. Still, I was being punished for not paying up front on the off chance I couldn't travel. The hospitality here can make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And on occasion, certain people would like me to be homeless. Sweet man.
Finished moaning now.
Went for pleasant walk up their big hill. Pretty rocky lump overlooking the city. Unfortunately, I decided to go at 11am, so I was clambering up hill in the heat of the midday sun. Loud voice in my head was shouting "you dumbass, get down" I always ignore her. Nice views at the top, though sweat dripping into eyes so couldn't appreciate them as I've have liked. Still, there's always tomorrow to see urrr.... aquarium again...
Will start attaching photo's soon. Taken lots, and have some really impressive ones of me diving. No shark, but to make it more seem more impressive, imagine Jaws but bigger, with sharper teeth. Even scarier than Gnasher in a mood.
Food now. Noodles, cheap, but not something to rush home for.
