Let’s go Taipans, let’s go!!

Before I start, I should point out that the beautiful green tree frog which Maria photographed was not the only uninvited guest we had last weekend. Ask Maria what was stuck in the sliding door the other night, preventing her from closing it properly!!

I’ll give you a hint… it starts with ‘py’ and ends with ‘thon’.

Another busy week is almost over here at Cairns Unlimited; where do the days go? Saturday night we took Maria’s parents to a basketball game between our local Cairns team - the Taipans - and their nemesis the Townsville Crocodiles.

The atmosphere in the Cairns Convention Centre was fantastic, and the game was fiercely close from start to finish, rarely more than four or five points in it. The final score was 87 to 81 in overtime. When the Taipans hit 85 points, the crowd went wild, cheering about cheeseburgers. Maria’s parents were confused, and even moreso when we stopped at MacDonalds on the way home and picked up four free cheeseburgers upon presentation of our four ticket stubs.
