Well, the rock arrived. The unfortunate guys who had to unload it got a pocket history of it's life so far, while they positioned their vehicle ready for the 'off'. They, I hope, finally realised the rock's significance, and why we had been so determined to get it here.
Then came the wonderful news. "We will put down this pallet here, so it will be a lot easier to move to your own house." I think they had visions of us phoning in 6 months to ask to move it 10kms up the road. Anyway it is up on 2 pallet, looking really happy, and I hope enjoying its new view on Australia.
Next hurdle is to try to get medicine here. We are off to brave the internal workings of the hospital.
