Today was an amazing day ! I started with a walk towards the beach, but it was further than it looked. I walked by the Barrytown school that has a class of 12 children grades one to six. I will try to go in and visit tomorrow morning. Then I was picked up by a lady named Robyn to go to her house to make a knife. What a wonderful fun day in the home of a kiwi. We were handed a piece of steel to start the day, and we left at 5pm with a knife in our hands. You know I would load the picture if I could but I will add it later. There were 7 of us - two from our bus, four charming young men from Australia and one young BRitish girl who works here at the pub. We forged the steel. Then we used a grinder to shape it..etc etc until we walked away after a couple of shots of moonshine to celebrate with the knives complete.
Tonight is the big bash night - cross dressing and wild behaviouer encouraged. My roommates partied until 6am today, so I don't know how they will top that!
Another hard day on the road - I am loving it!
