Hello from the Daintree River

Rob at the Bundy Rum distilleryJust when we thought him lost, our old globe-trotting friend Rob Krenn sends us an email from the Daintree River in Far North Queensland where he is on tour with a group from Germany.

He found time to email because the bus broke down and they missed the scheduled trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

They'll be back in Cairns tomorrow when Rob will fly to Darwin to meet the next group. Rob writes that one of his tour-members, an elderly gentleman, hasn't washed for a whole three weeks which causes a few raised eyebrows, not to mention noses, amongst the other passengers.

We met Rob more than six years ago - see "Dear All" letter - when he introduced us to little Rover.
