Although I haven't felt nearly as close to these guys as I have to the tour groups we were with in Africa and India, they have made me laugh and we've all hung out together pretty much constantly.

We finally arrived into Westport around 4 o'clock. Westport apparently has a mild climate boasting 2,000 hours of sun, more than Auckland and Christchurch, however we didn't see any, not one bit.
