Another 700km of driving yesterday got us to Coober Pedy – an opal mining town. We landed in an underground motel – a motel carved out of a sandstone hill. It was nice to have a warm place to sleep and being able to take a hot shower. :) There are actually plenty of other houses which are underground here. The place feels very alien as there is no grass, and the town is surrounded by very little life outside of the miners who live here. Last night we also went on the top of our motel and watched the sunset with 4WD cars going along dirt roads into the distance. Going on the top of the hill we’ve also noticed satellites and vents sticking out of the ground - which reinforced the very weird feeling of the town. Today we visited a mining museum and checked out some underground churches. We then found free internet at a local public library, and will be off towards Uluru very soon. Woohoo.
