Chicken Royale at McDonald's

As I walked down Queen Street in downtown Auckland working up an appetite I found myself surrounded by comforts of home. McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Dominoes and that’s just on one street.  I do believe I ate the healthiest McDonald chicken sandwich ever. There was no grease , it was really fresh, and tasted amazing. As I lay back and rest in the lounge that has Wifi access I can’t help but feel at home as I listen to a station that is identical to 106.1 KISS FM.  Obviously they are big fans of our entertainment industry seeing how the latest Hollywood drama is at every news stand. I thought I could escape Britney Spears but evidently I was wrong. At the moment, I feel like death warmed over with the amount of sleep that I am functioning on. I arrived at the hostel around 7 AM this morning but I couldn’t check in till 1 PM. So I made myself busy by making arrangements on giving myself a more permanent status in New Zealand. I applied for a tax number which is needed in order for me to get a job. I opened a bank account, got a debit card on the spot, and walked downtown wear I briefly glanced at the harbor but due to the rain I headed back to my temporary home. It is currently 58 degrees Fahrenheit and cloudy with a chance of rain. For the first time in my life I have an accent or so I am told by the Kiwis who say I sound funny.
