Hot spots in New Zealand

We are sitting in front of an air conditioner in New Zealand’s hottest town. We heard it was 29 at home yesterday. What a coincidence! It was also 29 degrees here, That is 84 point something Fahrenheit. It is much warmer than that here today.

The other hot spot that I refer to is wireless Internet, still quite new down here. While preparing to leave home on January 27th, I came across an article on google that was dated January 28th that said that just that day all the McDonalds in NZ ( over 100) “had” – note the past tense – switched on free wireless Internet access for all their customers. The news was so new it hadn’t even happened yet! Needless to say, that access, at least in the bigger towns, has made staying connected with the store and family much easier. As for being a customer, we surely didn’t come this far to eat under the golden arches, so we share a Diet Coke and surf while we sip and then slip off to our next town and next adventure.

We are reading Bill Bryson’s book on Australia. Very good and a lot of laughs.

Well talk soon.

Anyone seen Gnomeo and Juliet?
