Crazy backroads

Made the trip down from Goulburn to Queanbeyan yesterday. The trip was in two sections. A very mild mannered drive from Goulburn to Bungendore along some beautiful "backroads". The roads are nice but 2 lanes and quite narrow and the speed limit is 100, so it's technically a highway. They could have made the roads straight but as usual they made it very windy. It's doesn't move back and forth as much as the mountains but consistently has long sweeping curves. Bungendore is a sleepy little town with a bunch of shops and tons of arty galleries for everything from woodwork to painting and jewely. I've never seen so many arty stores on one block. They've got one school that has some football going on. I watched for a bit and instantly wanted to play again. By the time I set off with the family I met up with to their place in Queanbeyan, it was starting to get dark. I'm not familiar with the roads at all and it was the first time I've drivin in the dark here. It felt like the oncoming traffic was inches from my window. Not my idea of a relaxing drive through the countryside but we made it none-the-less. Some fine kangaroo meet was on the menu for dinner and it was my first time. I wasn't sure what to expect but it wasn't anything spectacular but wasn't horrible either. With a bit of rice peanut sauce, it was a delicious meal. Tomorrow and Tuesday I'll be cruising around Canberra talking a look at the sites. Apparently there are some fantastic things to see in the middle of the City including some galleries and memorials. I'll be checking out the Telstra Tower on Black Mountain as well. I'm not usually a sucker for the places that offer a view for some stupid amount of money but this one intrigued me. I had originally planned on running up the mountain but found out there was  a road and large tower on it.
