The Last Remake..

The remainder of the unpostable photos. You'll have to click on them because they only worked as small thumbnails. The one on the right is the view from inside the hostel in Rotorua, Mianh was playing with her cameras features because it was too stinky outside to do anything else. Below is a view of the closest two turbines and a panorama below that, which I feel is the quintessential New Zealand scene: Green fields, Huge sky, Sheep, and something indicative of a progressive social attitude (in this case a wind turbine). I have also uploaded the video, it gives a better impression of the turbines, so I hope you'll be able to load it up and watch it.

On a final note, thanks to Mianh for letting me post these things here, hopefully I did our shared experiences justice and Mianh, feel free to ammend or add. Yes there were many references to disturbing films and too many inside jokes and silly laughter. At any rate, I had a great time, it went by fast, which is always a sign of just that, and I certainly intend to return oneday soon. Ciao, -Kien

Awaiting a Guest (see post below)

The Brother has been dispatched back North today (and in other news my midterm has been written) and he has promised to use his 10 hour stop over at LAX to guest post here. In the meantime I'll just share with you that thanks to his visit, I can now quote far more lines from Matchpoint than I ever imagined (read: wanted to). For example, in this random scene pictured above, he's saying "Just say your number! Say your number!". Just heard the daily plane departing from Palmy fly over my house. Thanks for the healthy dose of fraternal harassment Moa (does that work?!).
