Snakes in the city
We spent a day exploring the city of Darwin while the car was being serviced. We came across a man with reptiles in the Smith Street Mall so Mel and Peter had the experience of holding two of the snakes.
Peter’s snake was a rainbow serpent (can’t remember the other name) which was determined to make it’s way up the sleeve of his shirt.
Melanie bought lunch for us, we were looking for a nice restaurant that served local wild foods, but couldn’t find one. In the end we went down to the wharf precinct and had crocodile burgers and buffalo burgers, followed by gelati’s from Trampoline for dessert, which was all quite delicious. Buffalo tastes a bit gamey like kangaroo and crocodile tastes like a cross between chicken and turkey, as we had been told. I don’t know why, but it seems strange that such a huge and ferocious animal has white flesh.
