Well, I'm not sure how giddy goats get, but I am going to be spending my second half of my trip in Australia. So here I am having done all these things and I'm only halfway through my trip and about to embark on a whole new adventure. Wow, I feel incredibly lucky.
I'm in Christchurch right now in the middle of the east coast of the South Island. Not too much exciting to report of this city, but here are a few photos anyway.
You can play outdoor chess in the square in the town center.
Or watch a jester like guy walk over broken glass barefoot.
Or get stomped on while lying in same said pile of broken glass.
Or you can just admire the statue that can be seen with a seagull pooping on its head 90% of the day.
Or perhaps better to admire the Cathedral with the Christian band playing holiday tunes in the square. (They had just left before I took this photo.)
Or maybe you'd like to seek refuge from the overtly religious themes of the town center at the Art Gallery which has some really great exhibits, many which you would have really enjoyed Michael Zelehoski. (unfortunately no photographs of the artwork were permitted, but I liked the architecture of the building)
Or perhaps you'd prefer a relaxing stroll down the river in one of those boats which method of propulsion is with long poles. I didn't.
How about staring at another statue? An alive one that is never found in the same pose twice.
He has been doing this every day as a means of making a living for the past ten years.
You have to donate before taking a picture as he claimed someone made a lot of money selling his photo on the internet. That mighta just a been a ploy that I fell victim to, tho....
