The last post is already a long time ago, as usual. It is just so hard to find the time and place to put anything on here. Most of the days, we are at universities/companies from 9am to 5 pm, after which we go out for dinner. When we get home (usually around 9pm), I just want to go to bed.

But anyway, about the last couple of days...

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were filled with visits, so not much special happened there. We got some tours around Christchurch by our genius bus driver Terry. We also went to the Queens day party at the Dutch Embassy. It was actually quite fun, being around so many fellow Dutch persons on the other side of the world.

On Saturday, we took the ferry to the Southern Island, to go to Picton. It was really beautiful even thought the weather could have been better.

The southern Island is just beautiful, it is much much better than the Northern Island. There are these beautiful hills everywhere and sheep (of course) and everything is colored in the most gorgeous autumn colors.

Our arrival on the South Island started with a good nights rest at a tiny hostel that actually was just a large house. We made a big puzzle and just all went to bed early, tired of all the travel.

Yesterday, we went whale watching. It was so amazing! We saw two large sperm whales and we actually got to see dolphins, they are the cutest animals ever! I wish I could show you all the pictures, but unfortunately enough, the hostel we are in now doesn't allow you to upload anything.

We had a day off today, to explore the beautiful (but very much damaged) city of Christchurch. We went on a small bus tour, went to the beach, and saw some very heart breaking images. We also went to this gigantic shopping mall =) were I actually bought two pairs of shoes.  After that, Kay and I cooked dinner for everyone, because we all felt we could use a normal Dutch dinner.

As I am typing this, it is 8 pm and the rest of the night is probably going to be spend by playing guitar, listening to music and reading a book.

Bye bye all!!!! I miss you !
