The Last Part of Kelly's Trip!

Friday the 26th we took the bus to town and walked around the city and did some shopping!



Friday night we Hung out with Grant and met up with all his friends and we all took a taxi to town and checked out their friends band. Saturday morning we got up and met up with Grant and with all his friends and then we all took a cab to the rugby game. It was a day time game but that didn't slow down the drinking process. Grant didn't actually make it to the game because he was too hung over and spewing every where.

Me and Alina drinking and partying way to much

all of us standing in the rain waiting for a cab that never came! Rina's dad finally came and got all of us Yay

After we got picked up we all went back to Rina and Gavin's place and watched the other rugby games on tv. We also Drank heaps and got really drunk or at least I did.

Sunday Morning Kelly and I went out to lunch and met up with her friend Christine one last time.


We also went to Mt Eden and it was the most clear Beautiful day I have seen so far!



I then dropped Kelly off at the airport around 730 and cried all the whole way back to Grant where I had dinner with them. That is like a 30 minute drive!
Today Monday I watched Sybilla and we went to the swings!


Tonight I am going out to the movies with Anna, I am trying to keep my self really busy so I don't get sad!

Rotorua Trip

Wednesday Kelly and I woke up and we started to get all our stuff together for our adventure to Rotorua! We left around 10am and started to drive it took about 3 hours to get there. We had packed a nutritious lunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips and soda, that we ate along the way. When we got to Rotorua we went straight to the info center which was great they were able to book us a hotel, a maori show and dinner for that night, and a trip to Hells gate the natural bubbling hot springs for Thursday.

Te Puia our indigenous evening experience was great! We had an excellent time they danced for us and did the haka and we ate the traditional meal that is called the hangi.




The food is cooked under ground.

At the end of the dinner we got onto a people mover and went to see the Pohutu geyser and we sat on naturally hot rocks and drank hot chocolate.
In the morning we got up and went to hells gate. We started with breakfast a granola bar and coffee and then went for the walk.


It stunk soo bad like rotten eggs! They were all natural smells yuk!
steam and mud bubbling out of the earth!


On the way out of Hells Gate we were able to carve traditional wood and this really nice maori wood carver showed us how to carve the wood, took pictures with us, had us dress up in the traditional outfits and told us about carving the statues and the culture. He was really nice!




On the way out of town we had lunch at Pig and Whistle. Kelly had fish and chips that she had wanted to try and I had a lamb salad that was really good, kinda sad if you think about all the lambs you see driving around but oh well!

On the drive home we saw this random car up on this log and I was forced to turn around so I could take pictures of it.


Today is Friday and we are planning to go down town today and walk around and see all there is to see in town and hopefully we won't be too tired to go out tonight.
