Den on the loose
NZ Day Nine Got up early today as usual so i went into the living room and watched an English film called 'Enigma' with one of the guys from the bus. Anyways towards the end of the film i got chatting to a Swedish girl called Linda who just came in and on the way to our next stop on the bus the whole morning was basically spent chatting to her as well as taking a short pit stop to walk along the coast to see a seal colony Just before mid day we stopped at Punakaiki to see the Pancake rocks and blow holes which was alright i suppose but at the end of the day it's just layered rocks on top of each other and because the tide was out the water wasnt strong enough to reach the blowholes so that was a bummer. Our final stop was Lake Mahinapua where we stayed at what looked like a motel owned by an 86yr old man called Les, nevertheless it was cool. After settling into our rooms we went to the beach and played a game of footie on the wet sand which knackered the hell out of me. Tonight was theme night which meant we had to wear something on our heads so lukcily whilst we stopped at Greymouth i was ablt pick out an awesome afro wig and and a Panda mask. Outside Les' place was an abandoned miners cart which meant only one thing, that's right Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom moment with me playing as Shortround. It was so funny as we re-enacted the shots from the movie and after that we headed back into the pub where i offered my services to the rest of the guys for this once in a life time opportunity to get a picture with Shortround which they gladly jumped at the offer. Tonight was definately one of the best nights out here in NZ as we all got to know each other better.
