At the start of a long, crowded tractor ride - the only available transport to much of the public - a small puppy is crammed in with the passengers. The ride hasn't even started yet and it is hot in the mid-morning sun. A big bottle of creek water, occasionally poured over the puppy, is the only respite from the heat! Every one else resorts to putting towels over their heads - reminding me of Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent! All travellers round here know where their towel is.
