Here’s a quick video of what it was like looking out of my bed this morning on the Ghan.
Had a fascinating day in Cooper Pedy where 70% of the inhabitants live underground to maintain a pleasant 24 degree temperature come Winter or Summer. These photos show some examples of underground living and the mines. It is very dark when the lights are turned off. We even had our Greek lunch 45 feet underground.
Next stop was an underground Serbian Orthodox Church. Only built 25 years ago and already no longer in use except for once or twice a year.
