I spent a day packing boxes of lunches for the student volunteer army in Christchurch. We managed to prepare over 17,000 lunches 😀 We in fact prepared so many, that they wouldn’t all fit in the truck being used to transport them to Christchurch, and so Ed Waite and myself carted them up in Ed’s Landcruiser.
Great night out with my new flatmate Sushi, Rose, Jordy and Amy.
During the hour after the earthquake in Christchurch on February 22nd 2011, the major New Zealand news sites were suffering overloading/performance problems, so this post was used to distribute photos until the news network sites became usable again.
Chris Laing and I camped at Pearl flat which sits below Mount Aspiring. Since no one else was stupid enough to go camping with the sand flies, we had the whole area to ourselves 😀 The sand flies weren’t a major nuisance and seemed to avoid stinging us so long as we smothered ourselves in regular dollops of deet.
