It is still raining as it has been raining almost the whole week. Kit left us for Paihia (thanks for a funny week, Kit!) and as far as we know has reached it safely by hitchhiking. This night’s hostel was an old primary school in Dargaville – it’s fantastic how interesting and different all the hostels are; and you only pay about 20 bucks.. (~10 Euro) Sleeping in an old classroom, the blackboards still on the wall, brought back memories. xP
Tonight we can crash at a Kiwi’s place in Auckland – hope we can find that, the city is huge! We got to know him at a farm further north where we stayed a few days (delicious free milk, yay!)
We were in the Kauri museum today – it’s really sad how these majestic old trees were felled (not to say killed, after all they have names, at least the big old ones).
