Kaikoura randoms: yesterday in photos – before, during and after the seal colony expedition! I bonded with an English lady over the nicely painted rental van! She wondered why I didn’t have a maple leaf on my backpack. My explanation of MEC and how it makes us Canadian fell on deaf ears I think. Personally I think the English should garb themselves in the Union Jack. The Dutch should wear more orange to disambiguate them from the Germans. And the Kiwis? I’ve often discussed what their idea flag should look like- black and white with a fern incorporating curlicues (a la Air New Zealand logo). But the Kiwis tend to wear a lot of black and say things like “yiss” and “sweet as” (not ‘sweet ass’) so it’s all good!
The hostel had a great patio for sunsets and thin crust pizza from the nearby Black Rabbit… On to Christchurch today..!
