First Photos

Here are 10 pics of my first days in Auckland. The nature-y ones were taken on Rangitoto Island, a dormant volcano in Auckland Harbour. These photos do no justice to the view from the summit. It was amazing.

Here I am, quite sweaty, at the top of the volcano on Rangitoto Island. Behind me is Auckland.

Your typical hostel room.

Lame ass Queen Street. Note the Dunkin Donuts.

The Auckland Sky Tower. Yes, that is a person sliding down two wires.

Amazing view from Rangitoto Summit #1.

Amazing view from Rangitoto Summit #2.

Amazing view from Rangitoto Summit #3.

Volcano and lava rocks.

Cool rocks!

NZ1 - New Zealand's "Big Boat" challenger to the 1988 America's Cup. Friggin' huge!

The best-named restaurant in the world.

Is this the Lion King....

Mike? Sweaty? No WAY!

Queen Street looks an awful lot like Copley Square. Screw that.

Wow, that looks like the greatest restaurant EVER. Even better than the mythical Douchi Sushi! Did you eat there? Heh heh heh.

Glad to see you are posting, pretty please keep it up so I have funny things to read and be jealous of at work...

Looks like you are having fun so far. A lot more than we are having here in the overcast, cold, beginning of winter crappyness. Please keep posting so we can live vicariously through you as we read from our miserable jobs... Rock on man!

Mike, I'm very disappointed. There are no kiwis, hobbits or Maoris to be seen anywhere in these pics. What the hell kind of tourist are you?
