penultimate Kiwi day

We're back in Chch after a nice day of travel down from Wellington yesterday.  Saw a couple movies and Prince Charles on Friday; Argo and Looper and he was just driving by with his motorcade (like when I saw his mum drive past in Oslo in "01).  Not much on the "agender" here today but eating some good food and enjoying the sunny (if windy) spring day.  There's lots of music down on the new Cashel Mall, as well as free Wifi.  Super Shuttle picks us up at an eye-wateringly early 3:50 tomorrow morning, so it will be an early bedtime this evening.  Trip chapter 2 to commence shortly, with the longest November 19 of my life crossing the date line headed east.
