Auckland is a typical sprawling big city with some really nice parks where I’ve spent most of my time. A quarter of the NZ population lives here, and it’s got lots of different influences (including American chain stores).

Some highlights: watching a live bagpipe preformance, going grocery shopping, meeting my dorm-mates, seeing a Cricket game, walking, walking, and more walking. Oh, and all the strip clubs around the hostel (four in a one-block radius).
