kata tjuta - the olgas

After the Cultutal Centre, we headed off to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) - where we were able to climb.  Including a stop at the 'shit pit' - what must be the world's smelliest public toilets.  Why the 'shit pit'?  Well that's exactly what it was!

It was climbing up Mt Olga that I managed to injure myself.  Whilst crossing a stream, I stepped on a rock which wasn't as secure as it looked and really twisted my ankle - but I still made it to the top.  Coming down again was very painful though and by the time we got back to Yulara I couldn't walk on it at all.  Thankfully Jess stepped in to act as nurse, strapping it up professionally so that it was completely better in 2 days.
