I don’t think I can keep up this blistering blogging pace. So today will be brief. Wellington. Very cool town. Great little coffee shop on Cuba Street. Te Papa Museum. I absolutely adore the Maori carving style. Roland and I split up at the museum, deciding to meet back at the hostel later. I spent some time just wandering the city alone. Tomorrow morning I catch the 10:25am ferry to the South Island and take Roland to pick up his rental car. We will be parting ways. I was so lucky to meet him and have a surfing buddy this past week or so. The two unlikeliest surfers: one from Switzerland, one from New York City. Hopefully we will stay in touch.
