I cycled to the Curtain Fig Tree (Ficus Virens) outside of Yungaburra. I'm camped in
the rain forest next to the "Curtain Fig Tree". Many of the nocturnal creatures
are having a feed session high above my campsite. I can hear loads of rustling noises, but
it is hard to spot the animals. A few of the ground animals are outside the tent and
checking out this computer. Now I am going to introduce myself to the possums and other
lil' friends. G'night.

Rolled into Town in the A.M. and met Johnny Law, fully aware that it is mandatory to
wear a Helmet in Australia. After realizing I was in town to do a story on Atherton he was
most helpful. I visited my local contact, Joan Speirs, and offered to assist with her
resale produce business. Joan resales avocados and tomatoes to markets and cafes. I
enjoyed the stay in a beautiful farm house.

I went to a country horse race with one of Joan's regular boarders in Almanden.
Alexandria, the gypsy, and I had a ball in a little outback town. Half the town of
Chillagoe showed up to welcome me home. The people watching at the race was priceless. The
most genuine kind they make.
