Mo and I decided to head for the zoo today. We found the right bus stop and headed off.
As soon as we go to the zoo it started to rain, so the first stop was the shop to buy a baseball cap. A NZ one obviously. The zoo was very well run and laid out. They had really tried to make the animal enclosures blend into the surroundings by using natural materials. The mere cats were so sweet, I could have watched them all day, and the hippos were great, so big. But of course my favorites were the penguin, unfortunately there were only two and one was hiding. But they were so close I could have picked them up and run off with them, but Mo wouldn't let me-NOT FAIR.
After a good few hours at the zoo we headed back and then onto the pictures. We went to see white chicks-very funny. You get your tickets and food at the same counter so it saves you having to cue twice. Only one problem they don't sell hotdogs here and they only sell salted popcorn. They kiwis really seem to enjoy themselves, really laughing out loud and clapping at the good bits. We headed back to base had a few beers in the bar and an early night for me-the first one so far.
