|Saint Lucia's Day|
As for the volunteering I'm having a lot of fun. A lot of hard work and the temperatures are around 30 to 35 every day so I'm really struggling in the heat and humidity. But despite that, there's a lot of time spent on the inside of cages mainly cleaning and feeding but its cool to spend your day working with Australia's weird and wonderful animals. So far I've fed the Tasmanian devils and the Roos who bounce at you on mass as soon as they realise you have food. There are a lot of colourful birds and a few eagles in the park as well but as cool as it is to be inside the enclosures with them, I am always very aware that they are watching me very closely and its a little creepy.

Just now in Brisbane we are on constant storm watch with monsoon season upon us just in time for Christmas. We've had a few scary storms so far and we actually got trapped in a canteen room at work when the rain came on hard and the fork lighting started to strike round about us. The wind appeared so suddenly and was gale force with things were flying about so it was pretty dangerous outside. We even had to move some of the animals because their enclosures were flooding. The next day at work was mainly spent clearing up after the storm as well. If nothing else it keeps me on my toes.
Looking forward to next week.
