Well, I'm officially signed up for that month-long adventure within my year-long adventure. I have no doubt that it will be worth every dollar, but I'm naturally apprehensive. "Why naturally?" you ask. I'm naturally apprehensive about anything new, especially something on a grand scale. No matter how sure I am that I will love something, there's always that one little doubt that gets bigger and bigger until I know that said doubt is groundless.
Anyway. I'm leaving for that on Saturday morning, which means I have 5 days left in Auckland. I don't really want to spend all that long in the city, but I don't so much have a choice. I'm sure I'll be fine.
Went out again last night, with the same guy with whom I ate pizza on Saturday and a friend of his. I ran into them on the way up Queen Street, as they were on their way down, looking for a place to have a beer. I turned around and ended up going for beer, then pizza again, then back to the hostel for rum & cokes and political discussion, then back out for more beer and to bring an end to the political discussion. Joanna: party animal, they call me.
Today I think I'll go have a look at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. I went over that way yesterday, but the place was to close an hour after I got there, so I decided to wait until I could have some more time.
Today someone asked me, based on my accent, if I was from the UK. That's never happened before.
I'm a lunch fan. Woo lunch!
