Auckland trip

Had a nice time in Auckland last week with my good friends Matt and Jo. The reason for the trip was to all go to see the La Clique burlesque show that was part of the Auckland Arts Festival. I loved the show - it was a lot of fun. It was also really cool to hang out with my lovely buddies. But I've decided that I do not particuarly like Auckland. I would never want to live there. It's too hot, there are too many people, and I witnessed some pretty upsetting gang violence on Queen Street that completely freaked me.

Here we are about to head into the venue to see La Clique.

Hi Rose, Is it David in the office? The guy who left when I started?

I miss NZ all the time, and I want to come back.
