    We rose at 8am and had bacon and eggs for breakfast. I repacked our bags and cleaned the room. And Richard packed the car. We ventured out to Franz Josef Glacier for a short morning stroll. The gorgeous path, lined with ferns and trees, lead to an information station before a stony trail to view a bajillion year old glacier! Photo ops at every turn …

    ... Now you guys gang up against me, haha" he laughed. Green will be leaving for Mt Cook so I will be joining the Malaysian for picnic tomorrow while watching the sunrise. We unknowingly chatted for a long time and find out it is late at 12am already. I drank with Green in the pantry as he seem very isolated, he was watching broadcast of Starcraft 2 matches alone. My face turned easily red and feel sleepy when I drink, so I wash up the wet undies and turn into bed.

    ... see. However, our hopes ride as Meg Hut comes into sight. There, next to the hut, is a small collection of dead trees just needing to be cut up. We get excited as we enter the hut. It is the coolest hut we have stayed in while in New Zealand! It has an open fire place, 8 very nice bunks, a table with four chairs, a spectacular view, and a lot of history. We took pictures, got a fire going, and made dinner. We sat around the fireplace talking and drinking hot chocolate until late in ...
