My laundry is hung up all over the room----underwear on hooks in the wardrobe, shirts on chair backs and socks over the headboard. I just can't get used to hanging my things outside, especially with other people's stuff.
Modified to add: Brushing teeth in the sink guy got kicked out for stealing..around the same time about half a shelf-full of our food went missing!

Spent a lot of this past weekend hiking around the area...either out of fun or necessity. The nearest area for shopping is about a 20 minute walk away...up and downhill. Had to go twice as Steve bought the wrong colour shoe polish;) So, after walking back from Newmarket (the 2nd time) to where we're staying in Mt Eden, we decided to take a 'fun hike' up the big hill, back to the volcano crater. Here's some photos...

Here are a few pics, mostly of the Sky Tower it seems;) New Zealand seems to be the capital of adrenalin junkie activities, such as bungie jumping, sky diving, and what this idiot is doing. Why people would pay good money (upwards of $200 for some activities) just to induce a panic attack is beyong me! Also some pics from the top of Mt. Eden, an inactive volcano, very near to where we are staying at the moment.

We took a break from job hunting today to do a free city tour. Unfortunately the one we had wanted to go on was fully booked, and the one we ended up on was a bit of a, erm, disappointment, as the bus got a flat and we had to wait an hour and a half for the tire to be changed. Ah well, we ended up at the top of Mt Eden volcano, and will have some very cool pics to show you shortly.
