Happy New Year kiddies!! We had a quite but very nice time last night sitting in a park drinking wine, smoking a cigar, and watching the fireworks shot off the top of Skytower in the centre of Auckland. We've been exploring the city for the past few days doing plenty of walking and sightseeing. Yesterday we wandered through the harbour which is the home of the America's Cup sailing race, quite interesting.
Today we are hanging around the hostel waiting for our taxi which is arriving at 2:00pm to take us to the airport. We fly overnight to Chile, gaining a day in the process, and will arrive in Santiago at noon on New Years Day. If my calculations are correct we should get another New Year's countdown somewhere over the Pacific!
More to come from Chile....
