Hump Day

Before our flight left for Cairnes this afternoon, we had a few free hours to kill, so we went on a camel ride...like ya do.  Of course, it was a camel ride that had a view of Uluru.    

Little did we know, there are more than 1 million wild camels in Central Australia.  They were brought here by the Afghans to help the Australians open up trade routes more than 100 years ago, and now have become an invasive species in The Outback.

Michael's camel friend, Trevor.     So, the camel represents the literal "hump" in Hump Day, but this is also halfway through our Australian tour.  Two cities done, two more to go.  We arrived in Cairnes earlier today and believe it or not, we are in our hotel room (after dinner at a local sushi restaurant - it's almost 10:00 PM) watching  "Beverly Hills Cop."  Unedited "F-Bombs" and all.  Only in Australia.
