I definitely enjoyed working in Cairns Tropical Zoo and its something I'd love to be paid to do but sadly these places are not available back home. So, having left the zoo without stealing any animals, not that I wasn't temped to pack Ernie or little Cooper into my bag on the way out, I had my weekend before leaving Monday morning.
My friend, Michiel, from Brisbane having just returned from New Zealand, managing to escape in a gap in the ash cloud plaguing flights from both New Zealand and the southern half of Australia, is staying with me after going diving out on the reef. So with my weekend free I'm supposed to show him the sights of Cairns but luckily he doesn't arrive back from his boat till after 5 on Saturday because there's very little to do in the city. We go out for a meal and catch up and the following day hang out at the lagoon before I have to pack up my stuff.
