Australia (March 2002)
After spending two weeks driving across the
bloody-dry Outback, it felt great to reach the coast. I planted myself
here in Port Douglas for nearly a week and had a good time visiting the
Daintree rainforest, swimming on the Great Barrier Reef, savoring the
balmy weather and tropical downpours, and, of course, updating my website. I liked everything about Port
Douglas... except the deadly box jellyfishes that frequent the beaches here.
