Giant squid, the avengers and another day in Wellington. Some days are good. I had heard from quite a few people that the museum in Wellington is really good.. And free, so I thought: why not give it a go? Damn those people... I spent 4, nearly 5, hours in there and didn't have time to see anything else of Wellington. But it was really cool in there, a lot of history from the maori culture and everything. PLUS: they've got the worlds only Colossal Squid in there. No one has ever caught one before San Aspiring did and donated it to Te Papa (New Zealand's national museum).
It was kinda cool actually to see the worlds only preserved Colossal Squid. Would NOT want to get caught by those tentacles, lemme tell you. Nasty looking things with spikes on it, and a sharp as beak to chew with.
Fun fact for those who didn't know it: when it eats, the food pass through the dough-nut shaped brain, so if it doesn't chew properly as the pieces are too big, it will get brain damage! Can't quite see the natural selection leading up to that...
Right after that, I happened to run in to a cinema and they actually showed The Avengers, a film I have been dying to see for quite a while but never quite had the opportunity. It was totally worth it, what I have wanted to see in a super hero movie. Downey jr is always doing a spectacular job in the iron suit, Hawkeye is simply awesome, the Hulk is just as ridiculously overpowered as he should be, Thor kicks serious ass, Captain America (surprisingly) fits perfectly and Scarlett Johansson keeps the Black Widow lethal.
Everyone had their spot, they got kicked well enough to make it interesting and they pulled it through with enough dignity to not make it childish. Loved it.
Then home for dinner, baked beans, fried eggs and a healthy slab of sourdough bread... You eat sort of funny when you travel.
