      Lovely Hostel in peaceful surroundings, comfy beds and the fireplace is in use during cold nights.
      They arrange swimming with Hectors Dolphins for a very reasonable price with a friendly skipper.

      They took the passengers to a sports hall and got seats for 400 people so they could sit out the storm and made them cups of tea. Then a man arrived with his bbq. Soon after many others arrived with their bbq's and they fed the hall full of people ...

When we pulled into the cottage parking lot, a man greeted us, and said your room's not ready yet, but we can take your bags in for you. At that point we asked Murry if he was going BACK downtown, which he was, and we hitched 'another' ride with him to town. He told us that he'd be leaving town at 4:00pm, and we could meet him to get yet another lift back to the cottage. WHO DOES THAT??? Who goes out of ...

      ... was pretty cool to see - it was housed in a building as cardboard is obviously not waterproof. We then went to the shopping district where stores are now located in shipping containers (i guess more stable during an earthquake and makes a unique little district).

      On Monday morning we excitedly went to pick up our campervan. In the warehouse stood a choice of two brightly painted vans - a more fuel efficient van with less gender specific colours or a gas guzzling, environment destroying, but bright flowery pink and purple van. The decision was left to Negar and no surprises we ended up with the flowery one, 1000 dollars out of pocket in future petrol money and approximately 5%25 of the native flora and fauna ...
