-took the ferry from wellington to picton
-approached some likely-looking folks (hippies!!) on board and asked if they were going to canaan downs. they were.
-with that approach, i met al, dan and su, some really shiny people.
-the ferry ride was BEAUTIFUL! we took the 7pm ferry and arrived in the marlborough sounds just in time for sunset.
-i tried marmite.
-marmite is disgusting.
-bumped into su on the way out of the ferry!!! wonderful chance encounter. planned to meet the next day in picton.
-i heard "ma otzaur" being sung in the lobby of the hostel (atlantis)...so i ran over and joined in!
-the menorah was birthday candles stuck in the side of a juice bottle, turned on its side. AMAZING.
-parted ways the next day, temporarily, with ulrik.
-su and i hitchhiked from picton to nelson the next morning.
-my new favorite method of travel! it's like couchsurfing, for the road.
-when su and i got to the road, there were 3 other sets of hitchhikers stationed at each block!
-with hitchhiker courtesy, we walked to the end of the line and stuck our thumbs out.
-we got picked up by a mom and her daughter about 15 minutes later!
