Arvin and I flew out of Sydney on October 29th on Quantas. We had to walk to our plane and we were way in the back!! It was a 2 and 1/2 hour flight with a time change of 1 hour and a half....weird.
Off we go to Alice Springs almost smack dab in the center of Australia. Arvin has always wanted to go to Alice Springs...fulfilling his dreams!!!!
Monday afternoon at 5 P.M. we had arranged for me to ride a camel. Marcus is the owner of Pyndan Camel Tracks! Marcus has property about 20 minutes from Alice Springs where he lives with his family and his camel business. He captured his 13 camels in the wild. There is reported to be 1 and a half million wild camels in Australia!!
Elder Morrissette from California and Elder Taukala from Sydney and the cousin Ezra . We treated them to Hungry Jack (Burger King) as it is called in Australia because they did not have much business when it was Burger King!! Elder Taukala had turned down a million dollar contract with a Rugby team to come on his mission.A lot of Aboriginal people live in Alice Springs. We celebrated Halloween at the Branch building on Wednesday. They had invited lots of people from town...was a fun event! We visited the Flying doctors museum, Anzac Hill and the Telegraph Station.
