Showers in Kulgera are very nice and warm. The girls use the time we have to make sure all unwanted body hair is shaved off. We have bacon/egg sambos in the roadhouse. Then we wash the car to make it looknice and clean when we get into Yulara. Because today we (finally) head for Ayers Rock and The Olgas. We pass mount Connor and for a moment I think it is Uluru. But it looks totally different. but a while further, there it is. Lachy puts on a Tribal Offerings tape (organised tour or what:o) and we all stare at the rock. No matter how great the past week has been, I think I am not the only one who feels like we have reached the destination of the trip.
But first we have to go to Ayers Rock Resort where we have lunch and a wander around. Yuk, how touristy can it get? The afternoon is spent hiking in The Valley of the Winds at the Olgas/Kata Tjuta. It is absolutely beautiful and if Uluru is anything like it, I will cry when I see it. The walk is long and exhausting at some stages because it is warm. after the walk we watch the sunset from the top of the 4WD. Kata Tjuta turns a beautiful dark red colour as the sun goes down.
back at the campsite we have a 3 course meal with a gorgeous cheesecake as Piece de Resistence (yeah, give Emer some breadcrumbs and she turns it into a cake) we set the table with napkins and flowers and it all looks just not right. The way it should be mind you. The group next to us has tablecloths and it looks very out of place.
Half of us play truth or dare later that night. Fascinating what you can learn about someone when you play that game.
