on't Rush through. Stay a while!
Mike is very helpful and Coober Pedy is an interesting place to stay in for a few days. Don't rush through and miss out on the reality of living underground and mining. Also appreciated our visit to the Catacomb church for the service on Sunday morning and seeing through the amazing Serbian Orthodox church.
