Today is November 7th. (Saturday).
So yesterday was Friday. And the day before that was.......
On Friday we arrived from Sydney in New Zealand in
Our suitcases arrived too, so everything was OK.
We were brought, from the airport, to our hotel in
the middle of the city.
Christchurch centre is nice, for a New Zealand town.
We visited the cathedral (Church of England or so) and
the boyschoire (spelled right?) was singing and it was
nice. After that we walked around a little.

More than half of the shops sell typical NZ things like:
- sheepskins
- woolen whatevers (by the thousends, because they
have like 5 million sheep over here; for people who like
sheep, it must be really heaven),
- Alpaca woolen vests, pullovers, etc.
- Maori art
- T-shirts with New Zealand and all other texts
- sheepskin boots (popular overhere too)
- caps with New Zealand
- all kinds of goods with "All Blacks"
- pictures of penguins and dolphins (for people who like
dolphins, it must be really heaven),

New Zealand is also well known because of its sandfly
and I'll tell you about it (I fear) later.
No caps with "sandflies" however.
For people who like sandflies, it must be really heaven.

The hotel was OK again and we slept well.
This morning a taxi came to bring us to the "rent
a motorhome" and around 12 we were heading east,
to Akaroa.
This little town is famous for its dolphins (for
people who like dolphins, it must be really heaven),
its french history (some streets even have french
names!!) and for its bay in which the dolphins.
It could somewhere in Nova Scotia but than
without dolphins.

Our camper is much better than we expected.
It has everything:
- TV
- radio
- soundsystem
- heating
- a boiler for water
- a shower
- a toilet
- two beds (but the camper sleeps 3 if neccesary)
- a kitchen with almost everythying like
. exhauster
. microwave
. watercooker
. fridge
. stove
. etc.
Tonight is the first night we will sleep in the camper.

This was it.

Greetings from Akaroa, New Zealand, famous for its
sheep and dolphins and penguins and All Blacks
and Kiwi's.
