By the way, since I keep mentioning my coworkers, maybe I should say something about them. Basically, there are two guys I met in Christchurch (on separate occasions, they didn't know each other), one of them gave me the contact for the vineyard job, which I subsequently passed on to the other guy and then we all ended up in the same hostel, sticking together ever since.
Dominik is German and came to New Zealand for the same reason most Germans do - to gain a life experience after school, before either continuing to study or joining the working world back home. Matt, on the other hand, is from Ireland, carpenter by trade and unhappy with the economical situation in his country. He's one of the two people with whom I shared the Kaikoura "Lost in the dark" misadventure. He loves cooking and I love his Irish accent, especially when he says "fárty" (means forty).
There's also Amber, the only girl in our group and the only Kiwi (from Dunedin). We met her here at the hostel and we enjoy her company not only in the lounge, but also in the vineyard (she's wrapping - laying down canes on already pruned plants). She looks really lovely with the green shirt and red hat, almost like Little Red Cap combined with Pipi Longstocking.
Ok, enough writing, I wanted this to be a short post, but as usual the graphomaniac part of me took over. There were some pics laying around on my hard drive, some of them go well with the "coworker presentation". I'm still waiting for the perfect sunrise, but even with the little sun from this morning it should be fine.

My camera's always at the ready, waiting for the perfect moment.
