Back to civilisation - and a busy (bitumen) highway

The road to Uluru/ Ayres Rock has brought us back to the busy highway. All the tourists who were missing out on the dirt roads are here instead. Above is Curtin Springs. one of the free rest areas on the way to The Rock. Camping is free and there is free hot and cold running water and showers are $3 per person.
The resident emu looking for scraps. I took the lid of the rubbish bin for a purpose - see below.

Humans are not the only creatures interested in water being available.

The thirsty emu was able to get some satisfaction. But he had to drink sideways as the water in the rubbish tin lid was not deep enough.
