I compiled some photos into a quick video. It is very rough but I didnt have too much time to polish it. I will make more video as it becomes necessary. Click on the link to view it.
I got my first check today. I have been working for 2 weeks now. Its not much, but I am glad to get it. Its directly deposited into my Bank Of New Zealand account so when I move on, I won't have to worry about my last check. The weather is supposed to be getting warmer here. I think in a couple of weeks it will be. There is a big hole in the Ozone down here so the sun feels a bit intense at times. I have been good aboat sunblock. Last week on Labour Day the Hostel had a BBQ. 30 people there and I was the only American, and the only one drinking beer. Thought it was strange, but the food was good. Later that night I spun fire Poi for the first time.(Fireballs on chains) It was a little scary at first but I found my rhythm. Its louder and warmer than I thought it would be.
The pic is not actually me but you can see what it looks like.
I am starting a wek long SCUBA certification program next week. Its recognized in every Country in the world. So I am looking forward to that.
The hostel owners Gordon and Sue gave me some blankets and a foam mattress for my van. Its so much better in there now. I built a removable frame out of wood from pallets I found. I have storage underneath and a double bed on top. Now I just want to paint it. This is going to be a big task.
