13th day in NZ!

Today I hopped onto a bus that took me across country! And it only took 5 hours! I had to go from Queenstown to Christchurch in order to catch my plane ride back to boring Iraq! uh! I hate responsibilities!!

Our first stop was a town with a huge ass fish sculture… I dont know what it is, but when I was in australia- we saw a bunch of random sculptures similar to this one. Strange.

The bus ride kinda sucked, I was up all night with some friends enjoying my last night in Queenstown! :( But we made the best of it- and I had to pay for it and sit in a bus all day! Luckily I was able to take a shower and wear PJs on the bus!

When I got to Christchurch there were a ton of sweet buildings, lots of shops, and also a x-mas parade going on… but it was also a little odd… it seemed like it was a mix of halloween, disney, asian arts, and x-mas!


Really? A dude dressed up like a dolphin walking in a x-mas parade? lol.

Anyway- the rest of the day I spent shopping, buying random things and making last minute arrangements to go 4-wheeling and visit the sulfur pools in Hamner Springs!

Weird.
