Yesterday was very chilled out in Taupo, whilst Nim, Ali, Jules & Lewis did the Tongariro Crossing, a gruelling 11-hour hike as they also climbed the Lord of the Rings 'Mount Doom'!  Unfortunately they didn't quite reach the summit as the wind and cloud and were pretty bad, but I'm proud of them for getting as far as they did.  Birthday morning meant the long-awaited opening of cards I brought with me from the UK, a chocolate muffin cake (later decked out in party candles!) and a banner and balloons to surprise me outside our dorm door - thanks everyone!  Fantastic Turkish lunch and Alice in Wonderland at the cinema topped it off perfectly...22 years on and birthdays still get me so excited!
