Cairns by any other name

Nov. 11 – Flight to Cairns

Yes, it looks like Cairns would be an easy name to pronounce, but the Australians have abbreviated the pronunciation to “Cans” and just ignore the Letters "i" and "r". We arrived at the airport and promptly left town for Port Douglas, never getting a look at the city itself. But what a difference from the desert! It is hot and humid and is pouring rain as we arrived. At least it is cooler than 112.
