Probably the worst thing though is how short the days are. It's really weird to switch from a 9pm sunset to a 5pm one just like that. It's nothing unusual, it's autumn after all, like November in Europe, but it still takes time for the mind to adjust. On the other hand, we could dream about such weather in most of Europe at this time of the year. Nights are cold, but days are sunny and pleasantly warm. It only rained once so far and the only nuisance is the wind, but it's not that bad. Lots of people walk with shorts and just a jumper and their fine. I shiver at the memory of English or Czech Novembers... cloudy, cold, rainy, depressing...

I had a really big dilemma about what work to look for and what to do next. My original plan was to catch the last fruit picking available, but it was too late by the time I got here. Then I wanted to go to Queenstown for the winter, find a job in some skiing resort or a bar or something and enjoy the winter in the mountains, but people say that despite being a nice town, Queenstown is expensive and life there consists mostly of partying, with drunk, puking people all over the place. Not a bad thing, but not my favourite occupation at the moment.

A bloody expensive meal
On Saturday I had some Japanese fast food, the most expensive fast food of my life. The crispy chicken was so damn hot that it burned my mouth to blisters. It got worse within a couple of days, not the usual burn that goes away after a while, so I had to see the doctor ($75) and get some ointment. I was also worried it might me the flu, so I'm taking antibiotics as a prevention as well. All summed, a bloody expensive meal for sure.
Anyway, enough chatter. Don't forget to have a look at the pictures.
