To save almost £5 each tonight we moved into a different hostel just down the road. Unfortunately having spent less also meant the place was a tip. As we dropped our stuff off they couldn't give us any bedding and Tom managed to step on a mouse trap, thankfully unarmed, the less time spent here the better.
We went for the bus and followed Richards instructions, the only problem being the driver didn't know where the cricket field was. It was being played on a small ground a little out of the city named Allan Border Fields, so we had to get off the bus and find out some more information about the location so we could tell the driver where to drop us off. Tourist information just about managed to help us out but the were trying to send us to the Gabba.
Almost two hours since we left the hostel we got to the ground but the time wasn't much of a problem. The ground was really nice, the only one owned by Queensland cricket we believe. We found a good spot in the shade and managed to spend a good five hours watching the game pass on. It was good to get involved with the Australian sports scene and the West Indian players were really accessible for the kids.
So after the cricket we had to go back to our hostel to make some tea. Instead we carried all our cooking equipment and food to the hostel we'd stayed at the night before, ate there, used the internet, watched a film in the cinema room, then returned to our hostel to sleep with the mouse and the smelly lot there!
