The 'GHAN'

On the 8th of July we jumped on the train, called the "Ghan" and had to stay on board for 24 hours until we finally reached "Alice Springs". Altogether we drove another 1500 kilometers. While sitting and starring out of the window bit by bit we got a very good impression how giantic this continent is. Red sand, some dry trees and greenish clusters, bleached cows and red sand over and over. Unfortunately no kangaroos! We managed to keep an eye on each side of the train, Julia was observing the left desert and I monitored the right one. During night time we had regularly shift change but it did not help - no exciting desert animals at all!
