well i finally made it! the flight from jrk to lax was worse than the flight from lax to auckland. the plane was awesomely huge and I finally got to watch four christmases and I fell asleep to Family Guy.

I had to buy a cell phone...man do you get like NO minutes for your money...it's crazy!

Auckland feels sort of like a suburban NYC...with occasional palm trees. And their crosswalks make noises and you can cross in an X if needed. Since I got into town around 7:30a, and check in wasn't until 1p, I spent much of the morning just walking around. You can tell the locals from the tourists because the locals are TAN and dressed quite nicely for the most part. But I got a little redness going on today haha. Since this internet isn't free (fucking ridiculous!!), can't spend too much time on it. I've spent so much money already. Tomorrow I'll use the FREE internet at the IEP office, book my bus tour (which I'm thinking I'm going to head out as early as Thursday morning), then take a ferry out to a place called Devenport and walk around and see beaches and extinct volcanoes.

So far Auckland is quite nice. Lots of people and amazingly cute accents...except when they talk fast I have no idea what they're saying!
