Got a group egg breakfast in with the boys. Stopped off to go grocery shopping in Richmond. Old Man bought three packs of cigs. The rest of us bought typical food items. Afterwards we drove to Nelson Lakes National Park and did a trail hike. Got a stop in stop in Murchison and had a nice drive through Buller Gorge.
We had to get the obligatory Lake Rotoiti peer picture
Caught a local rugby game right across from our hostel and then speny some good time throwing the rugby ball around. We got some beer at the local supermarket and played a game of caps with Mark, Errik, Old Man, Katharina, and James. Got pretty sloppy in the room and then decided to go out to get some grub.
I think the steak dinner was 10 dollars and it was really good.
After dinner, we went to meet our driver guide, Lauren, at a pizza joint. It was alright. The music wasn’t that great, but Mark and some of the others enjoyed a few games of pools. Mark lost to a local group of high school girls. All night people traded off a pair of pajama pants that Old Man nicked from the previous hostels laundry. He had no clean clothes so he creatively acquired some. After the pizza joint we went to another bar that had a live band that was rocking. We all went mental.
