      The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
      The kitchen is pretty small and basic, but then again the hostel itself can't accommodate many, so it's probably never too busy.
      Loved our stay here.

      We go into the Police kiosk in the square and exchange Garry's QPS patch for a NZ patch. The kiosk has its walls covered in police patches from all over the world in big display cases. Garry's is ...

      We climbed a little higher I to the blind, still remaining hidden,....when Kevin's French Accent became so high pitched,....I could barely plunder stand him. Breathlessly, he told us to look to the right of the blind, and we would ...

      ... cinema (Wolf of Wall Street--felt like we'd never left the states!). Meanwhile, the weather continued to be extremely inclement. After a wild and windy drive back, we're now settled in at the hotel and finalizing tomorrow's itinerary, which is to drive directly south to the college town of Dunedin, with many scenic stops along the way. Very hopeful that the weather will improve! Stay tuned...

      ... to the Canterbury Museum (next to the Botanical Gardens). We went past the Civic Centre (being restored) and the market area. We then headed into the Museum to see the "Oi You!" exhibition - based on street art (it included a few original Banksys) and we also saw the Paua Shell House - not a house made of an abalone shell, but the interior was decorated with over 10000 polished shells along with other kitch items. After the museum we went over to ...

      The trip took much longer than anticipated because, as you may remember, Christchurch is still under construction from the earthquake. Several roads are closed so the bus hit a bit of traffic. But we arrived at the Terra Vive ...
