Rocks Around the Clock
23,000 years ago, the Anangu (Aboriginal people) began to roam this land. Just 70 short years ago, non-Aboriginal (aka "The White Man" - which we are called) decided it would make a good tourist destination. Fast forward to October 17 & 18, 2013 - Annie & Michael came to visit. We weren't quite sure what Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) would have in store. Basically, all that is here are two large rock formations, an airport (airstrip) and a resort village. The next town is more than 450 kilometers away. This is seriously in the middle of nowhere, Central Australia. But, we are really grateful that we had the chance to see these natural wonders and learn more about the Anangu culture.
