Got to sleep in for the first time in ages! Booked a train to Dunedin and a shuttle to station for early tomorrow morning. Spent the afternoon wandering around in the sun. Christchurch has a very English feel to it - if anything it seems even more like an English town than any English town I've been to in England - almost a Disney version. Did email at an internet cafe - cheap, less than US$ 2 / hour.
I was going to go to a movie, but when I got to the cinema nothing sounded very exciting so I spent a couple more hours at the internet cafe and added identified animals to the Country Index. That's information that I've been putting in my journal since Southern Africa (more than a year ago), but that the journal has never known how to display.
Back at the hostel I got a little concerned because there were these evil looking bugs crawling over the curtains next to the bed. I killed as many as I could and was somewhat reassured that none of them had blood in them. Just to make sure I stripped the bed, moved it away from the curtains and walls and remade it - even so still had trouble falling asleep.
