i have just arrived back in auckland. the original plan was to go back to the hotel i was in before but i found a much better deal to stay in the hilton which is on a pier in the harbour. from my balcony i can see the americas cup yachts (which are preparing for the first race on saturday). the drive up this morning was uneventful. this afternoon i am just going to relax before a day of travelling tomorrow.

i got an e-mail from mum and dad who asked me to put a photo up on my site, so it is in the pictures section.
