Coober Pedy is such a different and interesting town. Our first 2 days were extremely hot and then we got 2 cooler ones. We were prepared for the heat, although the cool change was nice. The outskirts of town are surrounded by mounds of rock and dirt and these danger signs as people are hoping to strike it lucky by finding opal. Chris rests up and has daily visits to the hosptial to monitor how his spider bite is going.
