I am very very sorry and very mad (in the American sense of being pissed off). I fixed my Handspring Visor in Australia to the point where it actually seemed to work when the batteries were changed and everything. I then wrote copiously in it so that I'd have lots to put on the blog when I got back to the Internet store in the only town in New Zealand that let's me connect it to a computer (internet outppose in Nelson) and then last night it blows up again for no reason and wipes all I wrote about Taiwan and New Zealand (as well as everything else on it!) ....a whole month of brilliance destroyed......AAAARRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH
Oh well....here are some more photos with no text. I may create more text when less irritated with technology. I may just wait till I get back to the US in a few weeks.
--Barry King's wedding
- Bone and Pitcher bash
and not too exciting
- Taipei hash
- Some shots of the Diamond Lakes
trail near Wanaka,, and a few other things that got left out of 2 posts ago
- Shots of the Burley family and Telstra stadium
.....mostly of interest if you know the Burleys or like big empty sports stadims (this one held the Olympics in 2000).
I have since I got back to New Zealand from Taiwan and Sydney, been to Queenstown and done more paragliding. I then went to Milford Sound, then walked the 3 day alpine Kepler track and kayaked on nearby isoloated Doubtful Sound. Finally I went to the Caitlins (extreme south of south island) to hang with Sea Lions and Penguins, finally driving back all the way up the west coast in 2 dys to go to Nelson again, where I am doing yet more paragliding. Off to Auckland next week.
Full photos of these stops coming up soon......text is a maybe when I calm down!
