The annoying thing was that we got to the hostel at about 1700 and left the next day at 1000 so didn't have anytime to explore the ...
... the power of multiplication. Somehow this ties together with the universes above us that I can't quite articulate at this point - both are astounding in the size - can I even fathom how many grains of sand are on Tata Beach here in Golden Bay? can I really grasp 13 billion years?
