Jet lag...

... we think.  It might just be that we haven't slept.  Quite weird to be getting ready for bed (a very very early night) now while the rest of you are just getting up.

We arrived safely in Hong Kong with no major mishaps.  The views from the windows over china were spectacular. Arid deserts, snow capped mountains. Stunning.

The next hop to Auckland was the one where we intended to sleep. James did a bit (and is now feeling much healthier) Helen not at all. We'd also received an upgrade to Business class as compensation for Cathay Pacific bumping us onto an earlier flight. Which was in fact a more convenient flight for us, but hey, don't look a gift horse in the fully reclining seat.

So we're here, we've watched a lot of airline movies and TV, and have had an afternoon wandering around the harbour in Auckland trying to stay awake and reset our body clocks. If you want to know what that bit of Auckland is like, think Salford Quays with subtropical weather. And a very high tower you can pay to jump off.

It is warm here.

Christchurch tomorrow, and James gets a campervan for his birthday!
