Oh my head hurts

View Backpacking 2006 on jefranklin's travel map.

What a way to wake up: we got to bed at 4am after consuming a rather hefty amount of alcohol only to be woken up at 10am by one of the resort staff belting on the door demanding to know where our Japanese roomates were, as they were supposed to check out. We explained that we didn't know as they had already left.
Unable to get back to sleep, we decided to head off to the Olgas, which is the other major land feature in the same National park as Ayers Rock.The Olgas has a 1 hour and a 3 hour return walk that takes you through the highlights of it. We lasted about 20 minutes before the combination of a hangover and the persistent flies made it too unpleasant an experience to appreciate, so we threw in the towel and headed back to the resort, and more specifically the pool, to allow the noise from the pneumatic drills inside our heads to subside.
In the evening, we watched the sun set for the last time (for us) over Ayers Rock. I had planned to do a stop-frame recording of the sunset (as I had done in Santorini) but we were a bit late in arriving, which made it not worthwhile.After this, we pulled up stumps and headed back to our room. Not a big day today, for obvious reasons.
