tennant creek

we stopped here enroute from alice springs to darwin based on the advice of the moon handbooks guide to australia and camped for a night.

outside our tent last night we heard, in addition to the usual mumur of traffic, the sounds of shouting, screaming, obscenities, whistling, and barking in the evening air. sounding like a riot in progress, the volume ranged from faint to about a block away. the one sound we never heard was a police siren.

the noise continued until late in the night, and didn't let up until moning. we never did find out exactly what the source of the noise was. we left tennant creek and started driving north shortly after dawn.

When I was in Crete, we overheard a similar event. The next day we found out it was due to the results of a soccer match.
