Travel - Wellington to Chicago
The trip begins!
Finally I escape the bleakness of mid winter Wellington and the howling southerlies and rain and hail. Nice to catch up with Stu at Auckland Airport for a quick beer and chat.
I have also had a chance to try out my new laptop - everything is working superbly. The Vaio laptop keyboard is the most tactile keyboard I have used. Mmmm .. did I really say that. Must be time to log off, have a red wine and wait until I actually have something interesting to report.
Spoke to Mike in Chicago - he won gold in the Gay Games in his squash comp but his day was marred by a $US200 phone bill at the Travelodge Hotel. Can you beleive a charge of $US34 for a one minute call from Chicago to New Zealand.
Any way adios for now!
