We arranged to meet for drinksa friday and that night I got aqauinted with the others staying at my backpackers. Nearly all germans! Some of them were a good laugh but most lived up to the cliqche!
i asked the owner where I could look for work and he asked what I did what I was looking for ect.. Then before I knew it I had two days gardening work for him in return for 6 nights free acomodation. Not bad really, except when I got his garden it was on the steepist slope you can imagine and theres was loads of cutting back and clearence to be done, afterwards followed by jet washing all his drive. I was pretty knakered by the end of it, but it was good to be working outside in the sun and he was well pleased with what I got done.
Later I met Ramu, Bas and Guy and we had a bunch of bottles of beer at my backpackers before heading down the pub. It was a goood night and the Germans even joined us for a few.
Today I went by the ferry to a near by town called russel, did some more bush walks, collected some nice unusual shells from the beach, I even found $20! Then the walk took me to the top of the hill, where the veiws were spectacular, taking in all the bay.
Got some great photo's so take a look!
