We left the screech-infested parking lot relatively early, and headed back into Adelaide CBD. There were a few things we weren't able to look at yesterday, that were getting pretty pressed for time.

The campsite/parking lot we're staying in is next to a park. And it's absolutely infested with Ibis and Cockatoos. And one of those types of birds are the screetchiest, least songbird-ish birds I've ever had the misfortune of hearing.

Today was a pretty lazy day, which we probably needed. AFter hanging out at Traveller' Inn for a few hours, we set out for Isohealth BJJ. I got a message from the head coach last night, welcoming us to the gym and letting us know that if we needed any help getting there, he would be happy to provide it. It's fantastic how open and welcoming the BJJ community has been!

When shopping yesterday, Jeppe bought a box of ready-to-cook pancakes. We had them for breakfast today, with the lovely peaches we got last night. It was nice to have something other than Kelloggs or oats for breakfast.

We've had a fantastic night's sleep. Then new mosquito net works really well! After a nice, quiet breakfast, we headed towards Port Augusta.

Today, we started off by going back to Cooper Pedy. Those 50 km were much faster to drive during daylight. Cooper Pedy is the biggest town we've been in since Alice Springs, and has about 1500 inhabitants. Apart from the fact that it is one of the biggest suppliers of opals in the world, another of the attractions of the city is that many people live in dugouts - caves bored into hillsides. This is due to the really hot climate.

Today was the long haul back. We got up at around 9 when the tent got too hot. In Australia it really works best on the grass and with the atrium flipped back over. The naked ground radiates a lot of heat in the evening and grass does not, so it was easy to fall asleep.

It turned out to be another incredibly hot night. We put up our tent on a mixture of soil and small pebbles, which apparently absorbs a lot of heat and release it again when the sun goes down. So we got roasted, instead of melting as yesterday. Always fun to try something new!
