The girls woke up this morning to the sweet sound of the male folk making breakfast. We ate some croissants and Nutella, then jumped on a cab to the aboriginal tjupukiu, a type of cultural park where we watched a show on digeridoos, native folk tales, and tribal dancing. After a quick presentation on weapons and natural bush foods, we each got to try our hand at spear throwing and boomerang wielding. We had a major jam session where some of us figured out how to play a digeridoo while waiting for the cab to drop us off at the hotel. We had a quick Thanksgiving lunch and went on a shopping exposition. The girls spent almost all of their money while the guys emptied their wallets for food. We grabbed some Subway sandwiches for dinner and went to a reef teach where we learned about all the types of marine life we would see on the Great Barrier Reef. It was interesting and the presenter was really funny. We caught a cab home and reminisced about the 2/3 of the trip already finished.
