Only 5 weeks left! It's getting time to step up the thesis process seems :>
And after 4 months and cycling throughout Canterbury and driving around the South Island, I finally found a different and VERY important driving rule difference between NZ and Canada... besides riding on the other side of the road. When turning left (right) at an intersection, the person crossing your lane, ie. turning right (left), has the right-of-way!! Opposite to everywhere else it seems, and a source of most intersection accidents with foreigners.

Finally put up my last roll of pictures! They are mostly of my cycling of the Port Hills (about a 40km? round trip from Christchurch on bike) Check them out.

Hey ya'll... check out the touring website that Emillie and I have been working on together. It's replaced the old cycling website I started. Links on the bar on the left. Have some old cycling pictures posted under our past trip Gulf Islands 2003 (in the Blog) too.

Made my first batch of borscht in NZ. Worked out pretty well I'd say. I gotta get this think nailed down soon... could be handy in Eastern Europe! Emillie and I are relatively unsure about what food we'll be able to find there.

Not much going on at the moment. I will be posting a few more pictures from mine and Emillies trips during xmas and a bunch from an afternoon I spent in the Port Hills.
Still looking for possible cheap tickets to Brisbane Dina, but even the corporate discount I can get through work is at $400 (plus I can't use it until I after mid-March, which isn't much good, eh?).
Claire, Emillie's sister, should be arriving in ChCh somewhere around March 20th. That'll be fun. Otherwise, I might take a long weekend in Wellington to say I spent some time on the North Island. Plane tickets are around $55 one way if you go during the week. Not too bad! So if I don't go to Brisbane, I'll be visiting Wellington fer sure. It's supposed to be the art and funk capital of NZ, with a street that seems a bit reminiscent of my beloved Commercial Drive (it's called Cuba Street!).
Later all...
