These are photos of our van after driving through the outback for two days. Most of this mess was caused when we hit a grasshopper plague. Grasshoppers sit on the road – presumably because of the heat it gives off – lazing the day away, until we come along and they panic and try to jump or fly away. Instead they jump and fly into us, creating a mess that stunk of, well, grass. It looks like we’ve gone through just-cut grass, but what you see there is all grasshopper, my friends.
