after the walk on the 2nd day

we had lunch (just for your information:breakfast and quite most of the meals we pre­pared togeth­er but we had Piz­za and Schnitzel from beef… please be nev­er curi­ous — it tast­ed awful).

I decid­ed to give you this pic instead of one of mine.

Now on the 3rd day we went to a coal mine ‑the biggest in South Aus­tralia. It looked like an open wound. I saw a doc­u­men­ta­tion before and hoped I would­n’t see one but now I had.
