Had an hour to pack, but nearly didn't make it - with everything spread out so to dry. Unexciting bus ride to Queenstown - there were four others from the track on the bus. In Queenstown I ran into yet another of the trekkers - she'd hitchhiked (at beat those of us who took the bus). I checked in to a nice backpackers and spent three hours getting caught up on my journal. In the evening wandered into town - mostly expensive shops, restaurants, and fronts for high adrenaline (and cost) tourist activities. Did internet then went to a very disappointing Mexican restaurant.
