What I did
Last weekend, Sean, Nicole, and I went down to Tauranga to visit Sean's mom, Annika. They live on lovely farm where I got to see chickens, a pig (their neighbors'), and their two beautiful horses that I was brave enough to pet (but not ride). Apart from the allergic reaction I had from their cats, it was a nice weekend away.
The next day, we went to the hot pools during the afternoon. It was quite a chilly day, so it was nice to warm up in the pools. We also got ice cream at a local favorite, Copenhagen, which was pretty good. The rest of my time in Tauranga was spent visiting the animals, playing cards, and hanging out with the family.
We left early Tuesday morning to get me back for one of my final lectures. I am now done with all my lectures and only have three exams to take at the end of the month. It will give me a lot of prep time and hopefully some time to do a few last touristy things while I'm here.
