Brief and to the point.

Left Wanaka later than planned. Stopped at a pharmacy to pick up flu medication. Stopped at Puzzle World just outside of town. Then on to Queenstown for just a brief tour and visit with a friend of Marcos (we’ll be back in Queenstown for New Year’s). Leave Queenstown early afternoon for Te Anau, our base camp before our onward march to Milford Sound. The drive from Qtown to Te Anau reminded me of the landscape around Eugene along the I-5 corridor (dry hay fields surrounded by rolling hills). Te Anau is on a lake of the same name, which surprise, surprise was similar to Lake Wanaka. At the hostel kitchen we finally prepared the meal that we had purchased the ingredients for way back in Nelson (we’re starting to make a dent in the full trunk). The can openers did not work so we had to shred the tin cans to get to their contents, very messy and dangerous business.
