day sixty-four: the road to alice day five

Glad to see the back of Coober Pedy, for our drive to Uluru. A long drive of over 700km, stopping for sunrise and then at roadhouses along the way.

As we approached our destination, it was evident that sunset would be a washout, rain came in as it did when I was here 5 years ago. We made the best of it, despite the added annoyance of an overbooked campsite at Yulara making our stay cramped.

Later that evening, hugh took the girls into the bus to discuss "Womens Business" He had told us all that he was one of only two people who knew what was said in these Aboriginal meetings, and that he would discuss business with the men later on the trip.
