Day 19: May 10 : Uluru to Alice Springs

The next day I was all set to retrace my steps to Alice Springs. One disadvantage of visiting Uluru is that it is pretty much in the middle and you have to go a long way off from anywhere to get to it. And once you do, you either retrace around 200 kms back to the main highway or be insane enough to take one of the never ending gravel outback roads which I am not sure where and when it ends and what fuel / supplies it will have.

Meanwhile, another weird and burnt out plant.

I also visited Uluru Camel Tour facility where I saw some camels which were actually from Indian origin but still called Afghan Camels

Its surprising that how small a thing like the right kind of  hat can make you feel like a ‘cowboy’!

My advance apologies to anyone if they get offended but my aim to shoot an Aboriginal and show the natives of Australia to my audience who is not aware of them. Below are obviously the scale models against the perfect backdrop of Uluru.

I also met up with an Indian from Mumbai working at a Shell pump at Uluru! He was riding a Triumph Bonneville.

On the way back to Alice Springs, another rock formation jutting out of the plains, but not ‘important enough’ as Uluru.

And this one was one pretty sunset.
