Land of carrots

Was v. excited to see the giant orange carrot welcoming me into Ohakune this morning. And how apt on the road between Ohakune and Raetihi that I saw carrots that had fallen on to the middle of the road and a flat bed truck loaded up with carrots!

Am currently in a cafe serving Supreme!!! coffee – not that I’m having any because I had the obligatory Brown Sugar stop about an hour before arriving here. The locals are talking about how warm it is. 10 degrees! The guy making coffee in this cafe doesn’t even have shoes on and the floor is concrete – I can feel it’s freezingness through my fur-lined boots.

Have met all sorts of sad people, as you do when there’s a gathering for a funeral, people I’ve never met before. Mother just sprung on me that I might have to do her speech (can’t figure out how to spell uligy…) so am getting a bit wound up about that!

Damn! You beat me to it – my sister told me how to spell it and of course I realised I’d known all along how to!
