day 2 - sat 19 - ALL BLACKS
note: to be inserted at a later date
  • map with queen street highlighted

  • walk to/from foodtown

  • woke up quite early. planned to to go to sleep, however decided to use internet since it would be open (in the hostel). turns out I need a password :/

    proceeded to organize the photos on my external hard drives & am now starving! My hope is to be up early (though not as early - 3:40 am or so) and walk to the water & get pictures of the sunrise.

    It's odd starting out somewhere with a completely clean slate.

    like normally the phone, car, or bank account would be a replacement (car replacing sharing with folks if buying a first car) so research might have been done. However in this instance the need is greater to just find whatever works, not be so picky "go with the flow" so to speak.

    so the start of my trip is great for the lines I want to live by this year (and hopefully continue the laid back way in the future).

    10:15 am
    I go to pee & it seems everyone is brushing their teeth and/or in the bathroom! (3 floors I tried, 4 teeth brushers 2.5 toilet doors shut & in use - I think one was a teeth brusher that opened it, hence the .5)

    the morning was nice. I took my time, stretched, organized photos - things I normally would rush through or put off until I had time.

    Finally I headed out and ran into Julie & Mike. they walked with me to look at cars, after which we split ways until plans to meet around 4pm to watch the all black's game at a pub.

    They went searching for apts while I headed off with the goal of obtaining a towel (you know, to shower with - well rather use after the shower).

    The rest of the day continued as it had started. I made my way to basically the end of Queen street

    (SEE MAP)

    and to a store called 'the warehouse'. similar to k-mart, but not quite as big.

    I then headed to foodtown for some cereal, dried cranberries, & lunch - though not before taking my camera out (finally) and taking a few shots along the way

    muffin = yum! - so, hmm, felt & tasted like eating whipped cream in muffin form (since it was so light & moist, & just yUM!)

    All black's game - I find rugby more interesting than football & quite amusing.

    didn't pay too much attention to the game but enjoyed dinner & time with some friends. Julie, Mike, & Joe.

    stopped @ internet cafe on the walk home to check sunrise time & if it was going to rain.

    went to sleep.

    got a text from my wellington friend, jon so I woke up, which was good b/c it meant I was able to meet my roommate - emily from Omaha (like in the counting crow's song). She's nice
