Hot Burketown

Report 26 June
By Benno en Thecla

On the way to Burketown we have asphalt today. It seems like we are riding on an endless plateau with giant wheat fields, but what is ultimately a kind of grass. We regularly see groups of cranes with beautiful red heads. In Burketown we stop at the local garage and we change the differential oil of the T-Ford to check the last repair. Fortunately, everything looks good, no more liquid gold!
Going into shopping. We see a hot spring with many wallybees around it. The local representative of Burke Shire, takes an interview and offers us a meeting at the mayor of the Shire (about 75 km from Burketwon).
Fantastic! Ernie and Kylie welcome us with open arms and offer us a fantastic meal and a beautiful overnight spot along the river. A warm bath. Dirk and I are taken to a safe croc-free natural rock pool, where we take a refreshing dive.

    Lieve Thecla en Benno,

    Wat een fantastische reis maken jullie. Die foto’s zien er fantastisch uit. Je moet ook wel handig zijn. Wat een avontuur. Het is enig om jullie te volgen.
    Thecla, bedankt dat je voor jullie reis nog het krantje van het museum hebt opgestuurd. Namens Willem erg bedankt. We gaan er zeker naartoe.

    Verder behouden reis en liefs van Saskia van der Feen.
