Back in Nanutarra Roadhouse and I am paying for petrol and a meal. I opne a discussion with teh bloke about Australians not seeing their own country (Yes it has been an obsessive theme of my time on the cape) I brought the conversation round to the Germans and their invasion of the Pilbara region. Of course, he met me with his own racist theories about it. I have to say, I enjoyed it. I found it cathartic. And shameful a few minutes later. I wanted to vent and found a wiling set of ears and opinions. He thanked me for the interesting conversation.

God it's so easy to leas peole to hate. For my own crap reasons I savoured stereotypes with someone who would probably have a whole host for me and my kind.
