Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

The Roof of Queensland

Following on from the Sapphire Gemfields we headed south towards Carnarvon Gorge in the heart of central Queensland. The surrounding area was flat and dry - there has been a drought in this area for several years now and the fields which would at other times have sunflowers and sorghum wheat looked dusty and barren except for the flocks of emus and cranes feeding on the seeds in the fields.

It was still very interesting to see on the one hand the migratory birds and on the other hand the flightless birds. 
We climbed up to Boolimba Bluff which is some 200 metres above the Gorge. It is walk worth doing for the wonderful views it gives you over the Gorge. You can see the Gorge's open mouth to start with and then the way it narrows. You can see the winding path that goes down the middle of it. On either side some impressive sandstone cliffs, interesting side gorges and of course some amazing Aboriginal stencil art. More about all of this in my next blog.
