Nothing like a quiet retreat into the rainforest with just a half a handful of people after being on a boisterous tour bus for eleven days.
So a few of us from the quaint little hostel in Cairns on the northern part of the east coast piled into a local's teeny toyota two door. A very interesting chap temporarily living at the hostel imparted his local knowledge, wisdom and quite humbling and inspiring stories and experiences from his life and death after driving us out to a local swimming hole with some nice jumping ledges, butterflies and lizards along the way. Particularly interesting was the entlike tree that you half expected to stretch its roots out and start walking toward you. I didn't manage to get a pic of the large lizard in the forest though.
So, yeah, bought a new camera and also got a memory stick for my video camera to take pictures on the fly while filming.
