The view driving from the wrong side of the road from the wrong side of the car. Question: "Was it weird?" Answer: "Yes!"
The facial expression of a person in their first hour of driving on the wrong side of the road. The rental car company didn't specifically say "Don't take a picture of yourself in your first hour of driving in New Zealand" so I don't think I was breaking any laws here.
Hobbiton! a view of the mill and the bridge
"And what about very old friends?"
I'm hoping Peter Jackson sees some of my photos and brings me on board as a director of photography!

Day 3: Hanging out in Auckland
Adoration followed by Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Auckland. I didn't know the schedule when I got there at 11, but I was hoping for some adoration time and Mass. Adoration began at 11, and Mass was at noon!! God is good!
