U2360° TOUR Leg 3: 2011

Nov

Day off, Auckland.

Having successfully negotiated another change of country and time zone I ended up sleeping till 1pm. In my defence, a) I was knackered and b) it was only 11am in Melbourne. This put me on the street looking for breakfast around 2pm but fortunately Auckland is a town that can very much deliver on that score. Yesterdays cool damp has given way to spring sunshine so the place looked beautiful. I ended up at Cafe Melba on Vulcan, where I sat for ages watching the world go by and feeling slightly stunned.

Came back to the hotel via a couple of used bookstores (they still have them here) before finally getting some work done. Im keeping ambition to a minimum today. Were staying in serviced apartments that feature kitchens and laundries, so Im also making hay whilst the domestic sun shines. With the next stop being Toyko, a wise man would get his domestic affairs in as orderly a state as possible whilst his environs are still reasonably familiar.
