According to the date, it is Thanksgiving Day here. The location doesn’t seem to match though. It is absolutely crazy that today, November 22 I have been away from home for 3 months with only 2 days left of this program. We’ve just arrived in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city located in the north of the North Island. Here, we have the day to prepare for our paper tomorrow. We just were brought closer to home with an apple and pumpkin pie! Those are not popular items here so we had it specially made. Yummy
Tomorrow we will also have a final dinner at a Mexican restaurant and then Saturday our group will part ways. Most people are flying home and some are going straight to Fiji. I’m extending my travels by staying in Auckland for 5 days and then going to Fiji for a week!
