Coober Pedy

I’ve left Adelaide and am now in Coober Pedy, South Australia.

This town is……unique. The place i’m stayin is 15 feet underground. Many of the buildings here are underground, built by miners looking for opal. The town sort of looks like Tatooine from Star Wars.

My bus arrived at 5am and I slept until 11am. It is easy to lose track of time when you can’t see the sun.

I’ll be here for two days shooting some podcast video, then I’m off to Uluru and Alice Springs.

    Do some noodling. Coober Pedy is one of the places I wished I had time to visit on my last trip.
