Location: Dunedin, New Zealand

MapI have officially arrived! After many hours of flying and many times packing and repacking my backpack I am here in Dunedin, New Zealand. I have one roomate who is from Hong Kong and the other one that is from Holland. I have one more roomate but he is yet to show up. The place that I will be staying at here is nice. It's a lot nice then I thought it might be. Tomorrow I must go for groceries and start getting my life organized. I can't believe class starts in 13 days.

Also today in the airport the drug dog sniffed my bag and then sat down, which means the lady had to check my carry on, after I proved that I wasn't trying to smuggle anything into the country I passed customs and then they asked me if I brought along any hiking shows and I replied "yes" because I did, then I proceeded again to get in the line where they go through your whole bag. After all was said and done, they went through both bags, and I recieved a free shoe wash from customs!

Apparently this big rugby tournament has just started. It's called the super 14, with teams from New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. I look forward to watching rugby with these rugby hoolaginz. I also am looking forward to playing a little inturmural rugby while I'm here. I should learn a thing or two about the sport while I'm here.
