Every day while I was at Fowlers Gap, I got up and went for a long walk and took as many photos as possible. Then I would work on painting ideas and some applications that I'm working on. It was a great two weeks! I wasn't sure how I would go being by myself for so long in such a remote place with no internet, iPhone etc. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I had a lot of work to do so I was never bored. It was a good time to quiet my mind and think about where I am headed over the next few years. I'm thinking of doing a PhD.
The landscape is quite green at the moment. I was told that a few months earlier this year it was just red dirt and rocks as far as the eye could see. About 2 days before I left a heap of thunderstorms came through and I wasn't sure if I would be able to get home on the Monday. Fortunately the water on the roads receded and I managed to drive my sedan through 45km of muddy, red dirt roads from Fowlers Gap to Broken Hill. It was pretty hairy! But my fantastic little car got through :-)
