Leaving Darwin

Well, a highlight of my stay here in the Top End would have to be the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. This was made especially cool because I happened to be wandering around the area earlier in the day, so I could see what it looked like at mid-day and then later when the market was in full swing.

And was it ever! There were tons and tons of food options, a live band, craft (and god knows what-else) sales and even pony rides. As befitting a fair-like atmosphere, I started with a “Pluto Pup,” which is basically just their name for a corn dog. (Any guesses what “Fairy Floss” is? Hint: it’s bright pink.)

Having satisfied the requirement for Iowa-style fair food, I next decided to mix it up with something perhaps a little more Australian: crocodile satay. (Other choices: possum satay, camel sausage, kangaroo…)

Now that I’ve had both a kangaroo burger and crocodile-on-a-stick, I can definitively say that neither tastes like chicken.
