This is our last day in New Zealand. We’ve driven around for a week to the mountains, farmland and ocean.
Also, we paraglided!
It was fun to pretend I was a hawk riding the thermals. But I did get nauseated when he started us on the 360-spins. JP, my pilot, let me fly it while he took pictures.
That means laundry, inoculations, and reorganization. Also, lots of walking around Christchurch. It’s a very cool city that is full of green space and public art.
Right after we landed in New Zealand from Antarctica Richard started showing symptoms of a upper respiratory virus. He sneezed and blew his nose through that for the week. This morning, I woke up with the same symptoms. Yay! Bring on the 24 hours of travel it will take to get to Japan. Oh, well. For now I will be binge drinking tea and pretending I feel fine.
