the liquor apothecary
i never did figure out the geography of christchurch. it always feels like i'm walking the right way, and it never is...

hitchhiked from blenheim down to christchurch with colette and her big black dog.
pitched my tent in the backyard of her boarding house for the week!
hung out with the wacky inhabitants of the boarding house...what a world.
wandered around the city heaps.
wandered into a hotel (off the square) to book a room for jamie's arrival.
made friends with the guy behind the desk.
later that night, ordered pizza and hung out in the lobby there with him (glen), michael and jeff (carey's brother, from wellington! nyc!)
hung out all night.
glen introduced me to sol square and lichfield lanes, which are two cool areas in christchurch. (the 2 cool areas?)
taylor's mistake, with jeff and his 2 couchsurfing girlies.
black sand beach! intense and scary and beautiful.
crazy waves.
we played catch with a broken tennis ball.
catch! yea.

jamie arrives!!!
jeff drove me to the airport to pick up mon principe.
jamie and i walked around, watched a giant unicyclist, fancy dinner at the octagon with awesome piano jazz (and they have jazz organ some nights!).
sol square for 10 minutes of funk.

the next morning we woke up to learn how to drive on the other side of the road!!
