On Friday we spent the night at Mt. Cook, the largest mountain in New Zealand. We slept in a hostel at the foothill of the mountain but because the fog was so thick we couldn't see it. The next day we drove through Topeka where we were going to go ice scaring but the power was out in the whole town so instead we climbed the mountain to see some beautiful views. On the way out of town we stopped at The Good Shepherd church which was right on the lake; instead of putting a stained glass window behind the altar there was just a clear window because the view was that pretty. We then made our way to Geraldine where they have a store that holds the largest jumper (sweater) in the world -- The Guinness Book of World Records has even approved it.
We spent Saturday night in a cabin in Rangitata, in the dorm rooms each bunk bed was three beds high (I slept on the very top!). When we first arrived I went for a walk to along the river. Afterwards we had a barbeque and watched the England vs. New Zealand rugby game. The last two nights were great times just sitting around talking for hours with all the people who were on the tour, there was a mix of people from Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, French Polynesia, Wales, Australia, and The United States of America.
