We started with driving to Alice Springs town. Alice Springs is the second largest town in the Northern territory in Australia. And that tell u something when you see how small the town is. But it is also extremely charming.
I just loved walking around in there. It was so quiet and calm, not like the bigger cities Sydney and Melbourne. They sold beautiful homemade souvenirs and good food and coffee.
It was also very interesting to finally be at a part of Australia that had more Aboriginal residents. The whole time we had travelled around we had just heard about them in different historical places, but not yet seen or met any. In Alice Springs it was many. What I thought I would see was a happy people living a healthy and interesting mix of two cultures. What I saw was sad and poor people, sitting in dirt and hanging on the corner. Even on their own land they can´t seem to be happy.
Anyway, Alice Spring is still a little oasis in the wast desert around it.
