Kewarra Beach --> Edge Hills, Cairns, Australia
I moved from Kewarra Beach back to the Cairns suburb Edge Hill again, where Anne Falconer had invited me for another stay - as today was her birthday!
I was taken along with her and her partner Jean-Pierre and we had dinner at The Reef Hotel Casino in Cairns (where I also got a few dollars to play around with - of course the one with nothing ends up with nothing) and ended up dancing salsa at the Latin-American tapas and wine bar "Casa de Meze" on the Esplanade.
After this day I stayed another two nights, as I had to work on the repair of my hard-drive for my laptop (tech stuff, bleh) and catch up on some previous reports.
And I had to prepare my next long-distance trip for the coming week: Ramon goes Outback!
