While in Australia Dr. Rousso had the opportunity to visit Ayers Rock. For those who may not know, Ayers Rock is a large sandstone rock formation in central Australia, in the Northern Territory. It is located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, 350 km southwest of Alice Springs. It is the second-largest monolith in the world (after Mount Augustus, also in Australia), more than 986 ft high and 5 miles around. It also extends 1.5 miles into the ground. It was described by explorer Ernest Giles in 1872 as “the remarkable pebble”.’ A picture (not mine) is included here which was taken at sunset. It truly is an incredible site to see and experience up close.


After a brief stopover in Sydney to visit friends Dr. Rousso returned to Birmingham with some unique aborigine made gifts for staff.
