Cafe Menu...

I was looking through some photos on the PC and came across a couple from a few years ago.
My sister had moved upto the Northern Territory and I spent a few days around Darwin & my sister's new home in Katherine (3hr drive south of Darwin). It was the wet season, meaning it was hot & wet, as opposed to the dry season when its dry & hot. Logical. The river through the middle of Katherine was running high, at times 17m above normal, and the amount of water running under the bridges was amazing. Its about 100m from bank to bank and at over 17m deep, thats ALOT of water.

Anyway we went for a drive and at a truckstop/cafe somewhere between Katherine & Kunanurra was this menu:

Just a bit different :)

Hi Murasaki
Thanks for the comment. It is an interesting sign, but then again the Northern Teritory is an interesting place!

Gotta love the Territory! Recently enjoyed at Darwin's Mongolian barbecue: Crocodile with Plum Sauce. The roadhouse you are thinking of is Victoria River. You can't get there at the moment because the Vic River Bridge is 2m under water.
Happy Birthday Mike!
