Still in Byron Bay

We're staying at the Arts Factory camp ground. Two of us have work so we can camp for free, otherwise it was getting expensive. Where does the time go. At the weekend we went to perform at Shannon market, which was a crafts market that ended with a drum festival. we were there at 6am as we got an early lift and then danced and played for about 12 hours. Then we couldn't get a lift back to Byron so stayed in a house nearby. It was pouring with rain next day as we hitched back. Maria and I got terrible food poisoning from some dodgy burritos and that was the rest of the day wiped out. We're still looking for somewhere to record and then we will move on, because sleeping in the tent has become a drag, as the nights are cold and wet. We're in a good spot though, with tons of other travellers who have advice about getting the boat to asia and where to play. Someone said that pubs in Darwin and the West coast pay up to $400 as they don't get many acts through, which would be great, as busking hear makes peanuts. We need money for Malaria jabs and other assorted things. Hopefully we record the album and get some sales from that. I've got my camera charged again and have steady wifi so will start putting on some performances of the songs from this tour. The upside of waiting is that the performances are polished now so hope you enjoy them.
