The Rock

This morning it was freezing and in the drizzle and low cloud the tops of Ayers Rock and the Olgas was shrouded in cloud. It was obvious I was not going anywhere. By late morning cloudbase started to life and so I spent the day walking around Uluru and the Olgas, I think I walked about 20kms today. They are certainly some pretty rocks. Whilst i can appreciate their majesty and beauty I felt more of a connection with the canyons I explored around exmouth, mainly because I was completely alone, and here you are permanently surrounded by tourists from all over the world. Perhaps the most confronting are the Japanese who choose to go everywhere wearing medical face masks.
