Thursday 22nd May - Day 109

DeJa Vu - Christchurch

We're back back again.

Nothing has changed since the last vist, but we're still northbound. It's quite slow here, so we can recharge our batteries.

It's also Champions the League final today. I go to a pub at 7:00am full of Chelsea and Manchester United fans. I end up sitting next to some rowdy Manchester United fans. It was obviously a little early for them too as they probably hadn't showered. Not too early to drink beer though ??? Why they chose to applaud substitutions, swear at opposition players and sing chants is a little beyond me. It's not as though the players could hear them. The guy next to me kept on screaming things like, "f*ing get up Ballack, you f*ing girl." Charming.

We leave Christchurch and on the way drop in at an animal sanctuary to see Kiwis, among other things. The Kiwi is a very strange creature indeed. It likes quiet and darkness; not the best formula in which to observe them. It was very difficult to make them out in the enclosure, a little bit of a let down to be honest. I was very tempted to point my pocket torch at them so I could see properly.

Another drive follows, towards Kikora. The roads can be a little deserted (apologies if I have printed this picture before)

I fully understand your comments concerning the roudy football suporter, girls can play football too without falling over!!

Aren't we proud to be British - absolutely not! When such lovely gentlemen portray themselves so eloquently - having such a wonderful ability to empathise, love and encourage one another - and really caring about the people around them. What a sad bunch.

Now, who else likes night-time/not doing mornings? Your comment 'It was very difficult to make them out in the enclosure, a little bit of a let down to be honest. I was very tempted to point my pocket torch at them so I could see properly.' Replace 'them' with 'Raj' and you have what me and Paul are confronted with each week after footy, at your house on a Monday night!

Have fun - and, ta for the p/card from Hawaii.
