Uluru to Alice Springs

It’s a 5 hour drive from Uluru to Alice Springs. Along these roads we picked up  few geocaches to arrive in Alice in time for a visit to the School of the Air. For 50 years teachers used radio to teach children living in the outback. Today the system is still working but lessons are broadcast over the internet via satellite links. Also in Alice, we visited the operations building of the Royal Flying Doctors Service. While we were there two airplanes were underway to medical emergencies in the outback. The doctors would have to land at little private airstrips at farms or Aboriginal communities to get to their patients.

After checking in in the B&B we went back to town and a park area where we could see some Euros (medium sized kangaroos) before going for dinner.
