September 23rd – 29th: About (and above) town

Another update! We haven’t left the city at all, but it’s still been pretty busy. Becky’s been working for about a week, waitressing and occasionally bartending at a swanky seafood restaurant on Queen’s Wharf. In her first week she’s already served a tableful of drinking, singing politicians whose names have recently made the papers for bribery and corruption scandals. (And we thought we’d gotten away from DC.)

Taken from near Becky's work, overlooking the Wellington harbor.

Our house is circled in red, to the right of the church on the hill.

Seagull! (Our house is circled in red, just down the street from the brick church on the hill.)

A couple days ago we went to the top of the mountain on whose foothills we reside. It was hella steep — we were glad we weren’t the hacking, sweating fools we saw running up from sea level.

Wellington and the harbor from atop Mt. Victoria. The brick church, near the bottom of the picture, almost looks like it's at water's edge. Queen's Wharf is the innermost wharf in the bay.

Over Becky's shoulder is a straight shot to Antarctica. Anybody care for a swim?

We’re heading back into the country this weekend, so expect more pictures then, if not earlier!
