Yolngu people are everywhere!

It’s handy to know Yolŋu Matha. BE was going fishing and the guy who picked her up found out I’d been in Arnhem Land. Turns out that he’s from Elcho Island originally, although he’s been here for about 20 years. He’s my dhuway and we had a bit of a chat. So much for trying not to speak Yolŋu Matha and concentrating on Bardi!
