We did a little exploring here today. One of the places we were told to visit by some friends we met on the road was the Serbian Underground Church. I so wanted to see it that I gave myself a good talking too and decided if I had a little 'freaky' I would just leave.
The thing that did not impress me and I know it is part of life but it is the commercialism of the place. Everyone is out to make a dollar from you and a lot of the time there is not much value for money which I think detracts you from finding the real essence of the place which is a shame (my opinion only of course). I will have to wait until I win lotto before I buy my preferred piece of opal which retailed at just under $28,000. Gary couldn't be convinced to sell the Commodore to buy me an early Birthday present and being the cheap skate he is made me go and try to fossick (called noodling) for my own. Must be the old potter coming out in me as I quite enjoyed digging around in the dirt.
That's it for Coober Pedy and we are continuing south towards Port Augusta tomorrow and I am hankering for some nicer scenery.....some blades of grass at least.
Take care one & all and thanks for all your lovely comments regarding my new little projects in Homespun.
