Re: The New, Hopefully Non-Slow Thread!

This is sort of off topic. Ok. way off topic, but our mountains are beautiful today. They always have a lovely shape.... all pointy and beautifully angled, but for the last 3 days they've been getting snow. It finally cleared today and they are fuzzy with snow. You can tell even from here that the snow is on the branches of the trees because the mountain looks all whitely furry. When it is clear like this it catches the light from the sun as it sets (they are in the east) and they glow lavender/mauve/pink

I know somebody who is working in Antartica. He goes down there for the summer and then they drop him off in Wellington when it's over. He bummed around NZ for several months. He liked it quite a bit.
Oh it will be worth it when I get there. Haven't seen my boyfriend in about 12 weeks which is far too long!

You can go either way from London as it's pretty much totally the other side of the world. BA fly eastwards via Sydney but Air NZ is cheaper (due probably to the fact they're useless and totally unreliable) and they fly via Los Angeles.

But it is a lovely country when you manage to get there. I wouldn't choose to live anywhere else!

Aw that sounds really nice. The scenery is lovely where I live in NZ - have you seen Lord of the Rings - some of that was shot not far from where I live. But back where I live in England there are no mountains anywhere near. I live in Essex and it's about the flattest place you could think of!

In Canada if it isn't Hockey, Football, Baseball or Basketball we likely won't hear about it either
