As much as we love New Zealand we are often comforted by reminders from home. Like watching the Simpsons and Knight Rider, eating at Subway, or trying to explain fraternity life to our British friends. But the greatest image of home was meeting Randy from Real World San Diego.

Just yesterday morning I was walking into town when I was stopped by an obvious tourist looking for an internet cafe. As I was adjusting my eyes from the sun (because even at 9am the sun was as it would be at noon) I noticed it was none other than the much adored Randy. I was about to give him directions leading him to our new cabin but I knew it wouldn't have given the four girls time to wash away the eight hours of sleep they just had. Instead I gave him accurate directions and chatted a few extra minutes before heading the opposite way to the post office.

The girls weren't very happy when I explained that I didn't bring Randy home with me but we are still optimistic that we will seem him again around town. And now instead of "passport buddy checks" we do "randy buddy checks."

We've had only one possible sighting and unfortunately it was a false alarm. But as long as we're here will keep looking.
