When I finally finished everything I had to do, I decided to take the cable tram thingy up to look at the view. only cost me two dollars return, since the ticket-dude thought I was a student, even though i told him I didn't have proof...
Had a look at the view, snapped some pics, had coffee and went for a very short stroll.
Then i went down again and started the search for the brewery bar :D it was fairly easy to find, and it was a nice walk:D I even saw some of those huge flat fishes swimming in, right in the middle of the city. that was pretty cool :D
The Brewery bar was cooler than I'd ever expected. Definetely worth to havea look at. The biggest problem was choosing a pint. But i did get to taste a few beers before i made my choice.
As there was no free tables outside I sat down with an english dude. when i dragged up the tongariro pics i had developed that day (one-minute developing is definetely not the best quality, but it'll have to do...) he started talking about tongariro, and we had a very nice chat about everything and nothing for the next two hours :D
When i went for my next pint i discovered that they had a six beer tastibng tray for 15 dollars :D a quick calculation made me decide that that was definitely a better idea for me than trying to drink a pint of everything... So I got a six beer tray, although there really was 7 beers on it, since they had a summer beer out too at the moment:D
Very happy me :D of course the thing was really hard to balance all the way out to my table, since the tray had some really weird handles, but i managed:D
The beer was amazing. i even liked the wheat beer, which i usually don't.
Needless to say, i was extremely happy when i walked back to the hostel where I'd dumped my backpack for the day.
