    ... times London's rainfall. Franz Josef in particular, which we arrive at early afternoon, received a London annual rainfall in a few days!! We receive another warm welcome from Rainforest Retreat, our home for two nights, and a small group of us go on our own mini adventure today through deserted minors caves from the gold rush era, now populated with glow worms! A cold scrub up as we dress to impress for post dinner drinks, and get a good sleep in prep for an epic day ...

    ... year! There is a prediction that the earthquake will hit past the eight mark on the ricter scale, so they are trying to limit the impact. We decided that we wouldn't want to settle in this town if we were to move to New Zealand! They wouldn't even be able to get any insurance!
