Wow how the weeks have flown by so far this year! Last week I did a fieldtrip, helping one of our consulting Anthropologists, who needed a second driver. As fieldtrips go, this one was fairly cushy, a road clearance (bitumen) and two nights at Erldunda ‘resort’. I was able to work with some amazing people. With big groups I feel it’s always good to have two Anthropologists as people will chat and mention all sorts of things while driving or while hanging on the side of the road waiting for the other Anthropologist to GPS trees etc. Often people would mention things to me that they didn’t mention to the consultant and vice versa. It’s great to be able to get a glimpse the world through others eyes (a point hammered home in Avatar – go see it, so beautiful) and help get over my fear of 4-wheel driving.
Storm coming in
Fancy towels in the ‘resort’
Caged big perentie and echidna – Australia has an obsession with ‘Big Things’, not sure why these have to be caged. Tighter security than Guantanamo.

No warning about this fella who was keen to sneak into a room
