Day 12

So today was a good day! It was chaos working with a million samples at the lab, but I’m getting acquinted and am starting to work more efficiently!

Sample overload!

We were done pretty early in the lab so I went to the supermarket to get lunch for tomorrow in the car to Auckland. Also bought loads of cheese to try out, haha!

When I tried to get back home it was rush hour (yay, spits!) and I could not get back in the right lane. Ended up going the other way to make a turn, but it was impossible. Found a parking lot and wanted to turn there when I saw “Thermal Spa Park”. I had time, so I got out and took a look. Ended up walking for an hour and it was absolutely stunning. The way to the water was covered with girls in bikinis and I was wearing black jeans and a laptop on my back. With 30 degrees, it was horrible (haha, I know, I can’t complain!) I didn’t have my DSLR with me (again…) so I took some pics with my phone.

Strong currents (funny vandalists!)

Then I went back to the car with another road and for quite some time I thought I’d be lost forever and I found it worrying I only had a banana and water with me. It was like I was in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in the midst of a rainforest or something. It was absolutely stunning.

Well, this was it for today! See you tomorrow after we headed out for Italian dinner my collegues! By the way, I got home safely when rush hour had past!

Nerd addition of the day (I’m going to see him on the conference):
