Wellington, New Zealand
0 km (0.0 mi)

didn't wake up till late as usual. MCQ went on a ride around Wellington...I wanted to do it bu I had taken my bike apart since the weather looked crappy all week. Oh well, I'll have to do it again when I come back.

MCQ and I walked around town, it being Sunday everything started closing the moment we left Becki's apartment. Went and got a kebab. Talked at length with this Iraqi guy running the kebab shop....about politics of course. It was good to see his perspective on things. He liked the fact that Mr. S. is gone and he thanks the Americans, but he said his friends back in Iraq are a bit distrustful of the American military. He says the amount of civilians killed by Americans doesn't get reflected in the media. He told me to tell Bush not to kill any more Iraqis, since they make good kebabs.

MCQ and I were going to rent a movie but I remembered that "Bring it On" was on TV tonight, so we decided to just watch that instead. Watching the movie, it was amazing how those little girls I met in Australia knew lines from the movie.....even though it was a movie their mom wouldn't let them see (they told me they saw it at a friends house. Anyway, I liked that movie, mostly for the fact that their is a nice Clash reference and the kid has a lot of cool posters on his walls. Plus the cheers are pretty funny, "we act like we are on speed, we're cheerleaders, cheerleaders!"
