Uluru







The next moring we had to wake up at 5.15 am to arrive at sunrise at the Uluru rock. After we unfroze ourselfes out of the Swags, had a little brekky we entered the national park and arrived in time to see the spectacular sunrise and the rock changing its color every view minutes.
We think this is probably the only place on earth where you meet tons of tourists at 6 o clock in the moring. It was hard to catch the sprit of this mountain in such a short amount of time (the basewalk takes about 2 hours) but nevertheless, we have to admit that he is very impressive!
We only felt sad, that there are still so many people that climb Uluru, although the Aboriginal people ask you not to. It is a really sacred place to them and they are begging everyone to respect it. When we asked Shaz, why they don't just forbid to go up, we had to face a really sad reality: not as many tourists would come and visit the place.
