Big. Friggin. Rock. Espensive. Friggin. Resort. (I was warned, on both accounts...) So no real surprises here. That's a good way to sum up the trip - no surprises (and no worries mate!) Everything has been awesome and fun, but also well thought out and somewhat predictable. We'll see what Alice brings... As far as the rock goes, we watched the sun go down behind it last night, and got up at 5AM to watch the sun come up in front of it this morning. It was well worth getting up at dawn. I especially liked how the Aboriginals implore you not to climb Uluru (with signage to match) and the arrogant white man put a CHAIN RAILING up the sacred Aboriginl path to help you do the climb. Bastards! Andy and I chose not to climb Uluru.
