No rain, frostbite, hypothermia or attacks by poisonous creatures so it was a successful night. It was actually quite nice and my 6 top layers, 3 bottom layers, 4 foot layers and 2 head layers worked to keep me warm enough, not to mention the 3 blankets….
The services were beautiful and we got a pretty up close view of the Popemobile so that was cool as well. Not sure what the crowds were but it was handled well. They have the nicest port-a-potties in this country – they flush and have running water – totally crazy. Still a bit sleep deprived and currently freezing as they have no central heat in their homes.
Headed up t warm and sunny Cairns tomorrow. Not sure how much access to a computer I will have once up there but will try to keep up with the posts!
