Walking Home (on a cloudy day)

On the bridge over the Hokowhitu River Entrance to the Botanical Gardens (not usually so eerie-looking!) The Square (centre of town) Duck pond in the square (I frequently look into their eyes) I just noticed this today. Isn't that lovely? The Lovely Library Walkway to the library entrance (where the sweet little cafe is) A street with lots of interesting little shops/cafes (and the wool store!) outdoor seating at a cafe One of the million and a half tiny Chinese restaurants (there is a crazily disproportionate ethnic population here. Hurrah for international students . . . )

So, I'd forgotten that information overload felt a bit like your head was the interior of a piano replete with multitudes of tiny hammers going non-stop. It's all fine and good however, class was cozy and intimate, friends-to-be were friendly and forthcoming and apple-and-bus-and-banana sharing and I even learnt how to properly wash my hands (under the fingernails too!). I even took lovely photos. Maybe when I'm not so ridiculously tired, I'll even post them!
