My second full day in Q`town

Another early start! The van came and picked me up for the quad biking. It wasn`t as fun as I thought it would be, and I didn`t feel very comfortable doing the terrain. So after a while doing it, I opted out. But I rode enough to hurt my right thumb! But didn`t mind too much, it`s once in a lifetime.
I came back to the city, and went for a jetboat ride on the Shotover river. This was fun, much much better than the Makarora one. And the water, good Lord! So f*cking blue! I just loved it. Finished that and then came my BIG tragedy of the trip - the bloody camera wouldn`t work! Don`t know why. I rushed to Q`town, found a Canon store and bought an S60 camera there for about a US$ 430. I really felt bad but I didn`t want to miss all the gorg pictures and stuff, so just bought it. It was around 2pm and time to go for the `Lord Of The Rings` ride.
Our drive back agian was nice, we went on the same route as y`day and I saw the same islands and scenic shots. Lovely, again. We stopped by at a place called `8 Mile delta` again where LOTR was shot.
Reached Q`town by 7pm, had dinner and hung out with the crowd @ "Altitude". It was quite a nice night. There was that pole/limbo competition which a cute Dutch girl won, some Hawaii night going on and lots of 80s cheesy music playing. I liked it overall, had a good time and bonded well with Katrina, Martin, Ciara and Helen.
Got back to the room around 1am.
