Where I stayed
Friday we decided to go for a walk. We made it as far as the Botanic Gardens. We wandered round the Garden of Evolution which took us through from the beginning of time until now in about 15 minutes. We then walked along the reflexology path in our bare feet before finding shelter from the sun and spending the afternoon dozing, reading and chatting - very lazy. We walked back via Orchard Road and stopped for coffee. Saturday we went for a swim and then did some shopping. I got some bits and pieces for my camera and then we headed to the outdoor shop to stock up on last minutes supplies for our big trip, more about that soon.......
On Saturday night we managed to get VIP seats at Quidam (Cirque de Soleil). I had wanted to go when I was in Auckland but never made it. It was a fantastic show, the clowns were so funny we had tears streaming down our cheeks and the acrobats were just unbelievable - we sat for 2 hours absolutely enthralled. We then had pretzels for dinner, sitting at the Fountain of Wealth - a very ugly fountain which claims to be the largest in the world (we did dispute that!).
On Sunday we had time for breakfast before catching our bus northwards for the next stage of our journey....
