day 6 - wed - a world of possibility
day 6 - wed
I head out today. I trade convenience of the city for the solitude & calmness of the country. I also get to drive & see outside of Auckland.

First joe & I hope yo get to the rugby place to take some photos. we now know where it is since he asked for directions - both from the driver of the bus with the chinese tourists as well as one of the people behind the counter at the hostel (they were all quite nice & helpful).

I got up around 6:30am, had breakfast, went to the internet place, packed & loaded my car up, then headed out with joe to take some photos.

mike & julie headed out this mornin for a flight to christchurch. we said our farewells.

first we stopped to say hello to my new friend mr. western union

we headed to the rugby stadium, but not before first driving around a bit more as we drove past it and ended up on the motorway (highway).

we met a man named frank while at the rugby field (now turned parking lot) who shared many a story with us. Frank directs the cars in the lot.

INSERT frank

we saw someone pilling the wood off of the seats on one side of the stadium. I'm glad we were able to find it again as it seems it won't be around much longer.

many photos did we take!

roof & announcer box

side b




frank & his sign

after photos, lunch! this, I think, was as much a challenge to find (due to parking). 1st there were boat loads of people & re-direction from Queen street due to the boobs on bike parade.

We then ended up back by the partsmasters store where I bought the new filter, so we stopped for some new wipers!

then, finally, lunch at a random place called 'cafe on college hill' or something similar. I convinced joe to split a choc muffin, which was really good!

joe & I said goodbyes & i headed out. only I missed the 2nd turn on the directions not knowing S.H. stood for south highway.

good thing as I had left my CD case behind with joe (it had been in joe & mike's room. I had lent it to mike & julie one of the first nights). getting it back would've been much more difficult had I made it onto the motorway.

ok, take 2! exit with CD's PLUS some pods(thanks joe)

Good heavens! I'll have to take a day off work to catch up on your entries. ;)

Didn't take the day off but did read all your entries. Hah. I think you're really in Trenton, N.J., and making this all up. :) Hope it's grand.

lol - wait till you see my moo cow pictures - hmm and maybe i'll figure a way to put my "moo" I recorded of one of the calves up (since it doesn't seem to work as a ringer :P)

I hope all be well - postcard sometime in the semi-near future. I have some - just need the time to write em. :)
