few discernable farms
not much else

How ironic

turns out train left darwin late :) i could have caught it, anyway am now on it at katherine. but they removed the lounge car a few weeks ago :( train station a tin shed in middle of nowhere
i liked katherine. more like what i was expecting of nt.
not sure how won tidy town 2002, dirty main st.
hot and many Aboriginals sitting under trees, they are the smart ones.

Tooth

forgot to mention from tuesday. highly recommend self filing of your own teeth. one standard emery board works the treat for a broken tooth, takes the rough edges away.
i will have to find a dentist when i get home.

ghan red

i woke in time for glorious sun rise
trees are small but many, but the dirt is the most wonderful red.
as when i was little boy still love train very relaxing. ghan is pretty aged, but enjoyed some late night drinks & cards overnight.
