Darwin Arrival

OK so I flew into Darwin yesterday for a week, got off the plane and got hit with a wall of heat and humidity ~ temps overing just over 100F ((or about 38C) in the shade) and humidity @ about 95%. (OK maybe it wasn't quite that but it sure felt like it... )

For those you don't know, Darwin is the furthest Northern mainland city of approx 120,000 peeps. The region, has a tropical climate, with a wet season and a dry season. It receives heavy rainfall during the Wet, and is well-known for its spectacular lightning - currently it's the beginningof the wet...

So before heading to my "digs" for the next week, we (my friends, Pam & Grant and I) headed over to Parap markets for some fantastic foody bits and pick up "bowls" of Laksa, a spicy coconut-based soup.

I'm mainly here for the Building Designers Assoc Northern Territory (BDANT) 10th birthday celebrations, design awards and some training...

more later... when its a tad cooler :)
