So, meanwhile we've arrived in Cairns, the backpackers' walhalla (apparently equals party, sun, a beautiful tropical lagoon, lots of shops and free meals...). No seriously it's a nice little town here. But it's pretty hard to find a job here I've noticed, the locals don't have ot high an opinion of backpackers and rather not hire them... I spent a whole day walking in and out shops and restaurants to hand out my resume. Then I met Marie, a friend from Airlie beach and she told me that a lot of her friends went on to Darwin because finding a job here was too hard...

That's why I was pretty happy when I found a job as a "kitchenhand" in an italian restaurant. Didn't sound too bad, back in Townsville Ben had told me that it's basically cutting veggies, dishwashing, etc., an ok job. So I was pretty unprepared for the reality of it. 2 full hours of non-stop dishwashing!!!! (Ok, except for a 2 minute cigarette break,... great!) Anyway, it was terrible! Almost as bad as the weed-picking... I mean, it's not like I really enjoy dish-washing anyway, but this is just worse, it's like never-ending dishwashing! just when you think you're done, the next load of pans gets dumped again... Plus the humiliation of standing there in the back of the kitchen, and the heat of the "dish-dryer"... it was a nightmare!!! When I came home again and told Renee & Daniel about the job at least we could have a laugh about it. Kept saying phrases like "It drains your energy" "How deep can you sink?" Just couldn't get it out of my system, had to take a shower to wash it all off.  Anyway, enough stupid jokes, this I know for sure: NEVER AGAIN!!!

So today I was pretty scared to start the other job I had found: working at a kebab shop. Had to be there at 7h and work until 2pm. That was really fun though, I got to do everything myself, take orders, make the kebabs and breakfasts, bring them to the tables. IT was busy non-stop from 7h onwards but I loved it! I didn't get bored for a single minute, the colleagues are nice, and the location is great (just across the lagoon) I am so relieved!

Yesterday Renee and I planned all of our tours and flights back to Sydney. I am very happy with our planning. We'll fly to Darwin next friday (July 1) and from there take a tour to the Kakadu national park and from there to the "Red centre" Alice Springs, Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kings Canyon, etc. After that we'll return to Sydney via Adelaide and Melbourne where we'll arrive the 28/7. Then on the 3rd of august I'll bring Renee to the airport (she has to leave one week early because of university) and then I might visit Canberra (depending on my budget). Really looking forward to travelling on again!

But first this saturdayl celebrate Renee & Daniel's birthday!
