A lot of photos here. Went down to visit a friend in Wellington on the overnight bus; a trip lasting 11 hours and spanning most of the north island. I arrived in Wellington in time to see the sun rise, though i lamentably don't have a good photo of that. Plenty of photos of the city and of the long ride back to Auckland, most of which was in daylight.

Lake Taupo!

Lake Taupo is stocked with rainbow trout from California.

The sun goes down

It then became way too dark for any more pictures
and then I took a nap.
