It never ceases to amaze us how wonderfully hospitable the people are up this part of the world. At Daliwoi we had the pleasure to meet Ian and Sue Bodill who were also camping for the weekend. Ian is the new CEO of the East Arnhem Shire Council, a controversial organisation which is the outcome of the amalgamations in this part of the world. And I thought the Sunshine Coast amalgamations were difficult. Imagine dealing with hundreds of indigenous communities, mining leases etc….no thanks!

p8110116Ian still seems sane (for a South African) more due to Sue’s stabilising influence than anything else. We hit it off very well with similar interests for the girls (talking) and Ian and I fishing.

We spent a few nights with Ian and Sue in town and visited the Garma Festival and had a great time with them – even got in a few games of poker (withdrawal symptoms on my part).
