Yesterday was another day of classes, I only had two though, and one was just a quick practical. I think I went downtown yesterday as well, but I don't remember why.
Today started off wonderfully, Heather and I went to this place that we keep passing on the bus, but never go to, called the Daily Bagel. It's supposed to be a New York bagel shop... since I've not been to a NY bagel shop... I can't judge, but it was delicious. Not as good as Elaine's... but really, what is? If you haven't had Elaine's Bagels... well you haven't lived. Anyways, we wound up down town for a little bit, just walking around the open air market and heading to a few shops. We went to a place called Centennial Park, which we expected to be amazing. It wasn't bad, but I've been to better parks, let me tell you. They did have an abundance of ducks though... and apparently they all thought that I was their mother. It was slightly cute. After that park, we went back downtown and had souvlaki for lunch, then went out to Queen Elizabeth II Park (QEII). Turns out it was a "golf park". Guess where we ended up? New Brighton. I know, what a shocker. We probably walked about 30 minutes from this park to downtown New Brighton, but it was fun, so that's something. I would like to mention, at this juncture, that NZ spells the word "tires" WRONG. Okay, that was judgmental. Anyways, it is spelled tyres here. I don't understand this, but alas, I must accept it. After hanging out a bit in New Brighton (I could call it NB from now on... but I won't), we caught the bus back to school. It turned out to be the most drawn out bus ride on the face of the earth. And it seems as thought it is getting darker out much faster here, it was dark by 5:30. I did manage to get a shot of the sky right before the sun went down. I was too late for sunset though. Alrighty, I'm off to sleep. Big day of... one class... tomorrow.
