I drove the whole way, (with the doors locked) since I had more experience driving on the opposite side of the car, and opposite side of the road from living in Australia and traveling via rental car in New Zealand. Ian had never driven in these circumstances during his travels so we decided that I would just drive for now.

The Boys arrived back in time for me to give up ...

I notice though that my hand was so swollen from the wasp sting that I ...
