Alice Spings

Alice Springs, a semi arid region, was over 100 degrees at mid afternoon. Imagine opening your oven door while baking; it's a dry heat. Visited the Royal Flying Doctors Museum and the School of Air (which used radio communications, now the Internet); two ways locals handled essential services (health care and education) for people living in the vast outbacks where long distances make conventional method unpractical. During the heat of the day, look in the shady areas under the shrubs and trees and you may see wild life.
