Come on England!
We had another early start today as we travelled on the ferry to Picton on the South Island. My first impression was that it is much prettier here than the North Island, with really varying scenery. We had a long day of driving, making stops to see a seal colony and for a 'comfort break'. When we finally got to the motel in Christchurch we had about half an hour to settle into our room before we left again to go and watch the 20:20 Black Caps vs. England cricket match. Having not been to a cricket match before, and not really knowing much about it other than it involves a wicket and a ball, I didn't really know what to expect. I definately didn't think it would be like it was though. The fans were really rough, and kept fighting and throwing bottles everywhere. It was more like being at a football match - not that I have much experience of that either! England won though, by a massive majority. although we were quite scared to talk as we walked out in case they heard we were English!
