This transfer from Alice Springs to Cairns went very smoothly. I got out of The Northern Territory without another canceled flight! Yay!!
On the 19th I did a walkaround in Cairns (pronounced CANS, really). Here is a model of the Bolands Center (inside the Bolands Center and looks just like it) built in 1912/13 and one of the many classic buildings to have survived the barrage of cyclones that hit regularly.
