... really have very little grasp of history in NZ and I certainly plan to read more books when I get home. Came back to the apartment after the wax museum and were so tired that we all promptly fell asleep about 4.30 pm, intending to have a short nap, but I woke up at midnight and then couldn't go back to sleep. So I've set my body clock all wrong again, just when I was beginning to get over jet lag. Chris and Hannah were OK, as they slept through till about 4 ...
... I had no choice but to walk around which of course was the last thing I wanted to do. Dinner is soup and another bread roll. Not sure what I was expecting but definitely more than this.

We bought lamb shoulder for a casserole and a smoked mackerel, I am thinking ...
... a million utensils and we were really sure how to eat the crab but it was easily the best night out for dinner of my life! It was classy and elegant, the waiters so attentive, the food amazing and we still managed to laugh more then probably appropriate. After dinner we walked to the Eiffel Tower to see it at night! We took a million for photos and watched it light up at 11pm. After the high from the night I got exhausted and slept the way home and straight to bed when we got ...
