Raining In Cairns

Hey friends!! Just wanted to write and update you from North Queensland! We are having a great time! Lets see...

We love our hostel. It's this little dump in the heart of Cairns. SUPER friendly people and we have AC which has been amazing. We forgot our camera so no great pictures to show you. I may google some later. We go to a restuarant every night for free (with our hostel coupons). I usually pay a small amount to upgrade the meal and Kari goes for the free dish. They are usually sweet little pubs with crowds of backpackers.

We saw an INCREDIBLE film last night called "A Very Long Engagement" - a French film that we gave a 10/10. I think this is our 3rd or 4th movie to get this ranking since we've been in Australia.

We are also walking a lot (about 4 or 5 k's a day). It's been good to balance out all the ice cream I'm eating.

Today we scored a little MINI Cooper car and headed for the rain forest. It was beautiful...despite all the rain we got. Sweet!! We got back and ate some dinner and decided to chill on the internet cafe for a while (at the hostel - $2 an hour). After this we'll head back into town (1 k walk) and get some coffee and ice cream. Tomorrow we head to the reef at 7:15am - we are SO PUMPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The weather hasn't been sunny at all...but the Cyclone missed us so that was good. It's been a great week despite the weather. Well, we will be home soon! We leave 2 weeks from today.
Have a great weekend! Josh and Kari
