Back in New Zealand

Your International Correspondent is back in New Zealand for a month. He flew in on Saturday to Christchurch. There he slaked the raging flyer's thirst at the Twisted Hop with some excellent Goldings Bitter (real ale being at a premium in NZ), went for a jog round the Botanical Gardens, and took in part of the Sunday service at the Cathedral. He is now in Nelson, courtesy of Air New Zealand and Karen whom he sat next to on the flight and kindly gave him a lift into town. Tonight YIC will go to evening worship at Nelson Cathedral, before heading off to the Nelson Lakes tomorrow for 6 days tramping. He might even find time for a half of beer - it's a tough life.
