It seems like it has been a while since I last wrote, but I did make it to New Zealand safe and sound. There just isn't that much time to write and it is expensive to get online. So for the fast updates...
The highlights has got to be participating at a Marae. It is a cultral welcoming when staying with people from NewZealand. Remind me later and I will tell you all about it.
The other fun stuff was our backpaping hike. It was 16 k both ways. So it is like 10 miles each way. It wa green and beautiful. But I need to get all cleaned up from it so once again it is a short one.
Sara, I am trying to take lots of pictures and I have asked around about the candy wrappers!
