Has to be done in the blue donger in the photo. Yepp, that is the laundry room (or spider room would probably be better suitable name). Since I wasn’t clever enough to put the washing on before 5pm I was unable to collect the washing. I tried to find my way out there at 7pm but it was impossible to see anything. That means I have to play todays basketball game in semi-dry clothes. New on my shopping list; a torch.
Welcome to Humpty Doo, a small town 40 minutes drive outside Darwin. From life in the city to life in the bush. Yeh, why not live in a “box” for a few days?
Main entrance leading to the only two areas where you can inclose yourself at night; the dongers (or containers if you so will call them). A life of luxury.
Since there is not much to do on your spare time in Darwin I decided to start playing basketball again. I love the sport itself and that it gives you the opportunity to meet so many great people (and hopefully it will help me to get fit again….). So, I contacted Darwin Basketball Club and just a few days later I was part of a team! Feels great to be back again and fingers crossed; if all the paper from Sweden goes through, I will be able to play my first game tomorrow! Go Eagles!
We met this cute little spider yesterday.
Australia has over 2,400 species of spiders. Less than 50 of them are harmful to humans. The actual number of people who died from spider bites in Australia since 1979 is zero. So really, it is no use stressing about getting bitten by a spider when you are surrounded by thousands of crocodiles who gladly will have you for dinner tonight.

Litchfield has several stunning tropical waterfalls and swimming holes.
It is beautiful but it is not like the beaches in Perth…. After 30 minutes we have had enough of both of the hot weather and of all the people. Being accustomed to having a whole beach to yourself, it is pretty hard to enjoy sitting on hard rocks next to three screaming kids.
People who lives in Darwin seems to love the place. So far I am not too impressed. Hoping that I soon will understand the charm of this hot and humid city.
The paper says “The problem croc had reportedly been lurking in the community for two years and had stopped children from crossing the causeway to school” So this is what the parents in Darwin has to worry about? Their children getting eaten by a 4.6 meter crocodile when they are going to school!!!?? That is just insane!!
