Whitefella's Burrow 2














Remember those pipes above the entryway to the house? Mike is standing under one of the vents that they lead to. We learned today that 80 percent of the homes in Coober Pedy are underground. So, while we were looking at the town and thinking it looked deserted, the majority of people and buildings were actually hidden from view. Now that we were told what to look for we can see mounds everywhere with air vents sticking out of them and we now know that these are homes and not just some dusty hills.
