Well, today we woke up fresh and spent the day at the Auckland Museum and Conservatory. Learned more about the Maori and saw traditional dances and games.
 We have almost mastered the public transport system here. They have 4 different bus lines/companies that all run sort of on the same track and share some of the same bus stops, but not all -- I have asked the bus drivers three times for assistance and was lead astray twice!!! Once we ended up dropped of in the middle of no where. I don't need extra help in getting lost, as you all know I am quite good at getting myself lost on my own! There are free buses, buses that cost 1.50 for each time you get on no matter how long you are on, one that charges for each "stage" (stop), and one that goes to the airport but still does the loop through the city!!! Anyway now that we are leaving soon we seemed to have mastered it...
Another discovery - the cost of food. Wow, super expensive. Even checked into Sub-way to try and eat a little cheaper and it was still $7 for a 6in.
Despite all that it was a beautiful day today, sunny and about 65/66 in the sun and 62 in the shade -perfect for hiking up the hills and countryside.
