NZ #2: city of sails

that's what they call auckland. because there's a harbour with lots of boats.







other than that, it's much like any other. the main street is preparing for christmas,










there are street performers....




& people are quite friendly.












but i find it refreshing that people can just proclaim the Word openly on the streets.....












& you definitely know you are in NZ because this is bungy country. like you get on this 3-seater...












which is attached to 2 elastic ropes...












then, they release the catch & it's up, up & away....
















and no, i didn't.

The next time you plan to visit NZ do drop a line to CY Leow, his blog on my sidebar. He is a Penangite photojournalist immigrated there some 20 years ago.
