Coober Pedy Australia,
Fred L Bellomy
Coober Pedy - Lobby of the
Experience Motel with its underground cave sleeping rooms. The walls of
my room, carved from opal bearing sandstone contained several veins of
the precious gem.
Coober Pedy - Above ground entrance to the Experience Motel with its
underground cave sleeping rooms. Operated by the Revival Centres
International organization, I found evangelizing materials in the
bedside table drawer.
Coober Pedy - Arriving by bus
after sunset and finding no lodge near the bus stop, I wandered around
the sparsely populated town asking anyone where I might find somewhere
to sleep for the night. Finally, a desk clerk at a fully booked hotel
suggested the Experience Motel off in the dark some half dozen blocks
distant. With some difficulty I eventually found the place and the
obscure entrance door.
