“EVERYTHING KNOWN TO MANKIND THAT CAN KILL YOU”
Yes. This is my thought as the plane lands on the scorched, shimmering flatlands of “The Alice”. Alice Springs, that is – Portal to the Great Australian Outback. Home of the 10 most venomous snakes in the world. Minuscule spiders lurking everywhere, including the toilet, that can suck the moisture from your body or kill you in 15 minutes flat. Crocs, the size of limousines. Yes, this is a scary place. And in my quest to see a wild Brumby (aka Mustang); I cowgirl up and step out.
