Sunday Nostalgia: Kakadu National Park, Australia 1999

Five days through the Northern Territory bush.

I don’t know who any of these other people are. I signed up for five-day tour through Kakadu alone, and never kept in touch with any of my fellow travellers. Our guide was grizzled (he spend the whole trip barefoot) and blunt but, I thought, funny (others lodged complaints). I don’t remember exactly where we were when this photo was taken, but I remember the ledge nearby where the guide told us someone had slipped and fallen from a few months prior. He seemed to enjoy scaring us with his stories — and with snakes and other creatures we encountered along our way through the park.
