Day 7 : At week's end.

Here I conclude my week's worth of blogging about New Zealand.

The morning started off at the Sunday Market, right across the street from the hotel. There was plenty of local produce to pick and choose from. I had a great lamb sausage and blended fruit for lunch. It was extremely satisfying. Along with that, there was a great selection of different kinds of cured meat, some really great peanut butter (which I ended up buying a jar), and even Churros!

After the market, I headed over to the Te Papa museum. One of my favorite things to do when I travel anywhere is go to at least one great museum. The Te Papa museum was definitely worth my time. It was an enormous building with so many great exhibits. Natural History, some really amazing local art, and a large garden area with all sorts of indigenous plant life. It's so refreshing to be in such a quality facility with great atmosphere. There was so much to see. So many interactive elements that were just really technologically advance. I've also noticed that every time I'm in this part of world, I get to see a giant squid. Even though I had a good look around, I plan on coming back soon. Oh, and before I forget ... there is no admittance fee what so ever. Most museums here in New Zealand seem to be that way. Here are some pictures to help illustrate what the museum was like.

I've learned so much since I've moved here, and I think I will continue to learn even after my year here. I could say more, but I'll let this picture speak for itself.
Once again, the rest of my pictures can be found HERE
