Annie and my 21st, Kiwi style


it's a treasured Kiwi tradition to throw a big shindig for a 21st, in much the way you do at home despite the difference in drinking age. Annie and I decided (her 21st being 1 november) to throw a double one, that would also act as our leaving party (but please, God, don't remind me that i have to go...) and today, after calling 'round to bars and clubs, we booked a space at the Handle Bar on 3 November for our party! there's no hiring fee, but we will put a tab on the bar and get a couple food platters for our nearest and dearest! it's going to be so much fun!

in other news, our weekend trip to Steve's house in the Coromandel was a blast. the weather wasn't as ideal as it was the last time we were there, but it was definately still a good time. Hannah and I boogeyboarded out on the ocean, and went farther out than we were comfortable with thanks to no inward tide and an awesome wind the other way, so it was a forty five minute swim back to the beach. but what'll you do? i'd LOVE it if i could go back up there before i go home, but there probably won't be time. planning trips to Taupo, Rotorua and Wellington in the weeks after i finish classes and before i fly home.

only 3 more weeks of classes! i can't freaking believe it!

I'm still envious you got to stay there for as long as you did. I'd give A LOT to be in your shoes babe! Wish I could've been there at your 21st. But we'll just have to catch up later. Much much love :D
