We went to our hotel - in the lower right. After checking in, Flat Jacob and I took a walk along the river bed to the center of the city. The green track is that of the Airport Shuttle. The blue track is my walking into town and the purple track shows that I took a short cut across the river bed when returning to the Comfort Inn

Walking down town

As I walked I passed signs of Aboriginal Programs
