Hello everyone! First of all, thank you everybody who reads and/or comments about my posts, its nice to feel that connection with all of you back home.
Today I spent the day exploring Wellington with Chrisanne, with Danny as our tour guide. Danny took us down to Cuba St, where we got to see all the shops and stores, including Real Groovy. Real Groovy is basically the New Zealand equivalent of Newbury Comics, but what was awesome is that Chrisanne and I found seasons 11, 12, and 13 of ER! They only have up to season 10 out in the U.S! However, apparently the discs here are formatted different so to watch them on U.S. computers and DVD players you have to kind of hack or mod the player. But its possible, and definitely not illegal, so we're going to try it out.
While walking down Cuba St, Danny made it a point to show us the Bucket Fountain. Here's a few photos of it:
And yes, apparently Elijah Wood elieved himself in it and almost got arrested.
For lunch we stopped at Munchen Burger, where I got a hot dog and the man asked if I wanted "tomato sauce" on it. Knowing that Kiwis call ketchup tomato sauce, I said I did.
After the sun went down, Danny took us out to explore the botanical garden. We took the cable car up to the top of the mountain they live on and when we got to the garden at the top, there was an amazing view of Wellington there. I'll try to post photos in the morning, since they were refusing to upload tonight. If this thing continues to give me troubles with uploading photos, I might have to put links in these posts to a different place you can look at the photos.
