To Picton


While on Kapiti and contemplating how brains function and how to program brains, I should have been paying more attention to the trail because at some point I sprained my ankle.

Instead of hiking in the surroundings of Wellington prior to departing for Picton in the South island, I decide to check out the Te Papa Museum. The museum is fascinating with lots of information about New Zealand history, geography, flora, fauna, and a wealth of information on the indigenous Māori. While there, a string quartet as well as a Māori troop performed musical numbers further endearing Wellington.
Despite my sprained ankle, I leave the North island for the South island the next day since I am here to hike. The ferry is a lot like a plane on the water — too expensive for how far you go, fast, and with checked luggage.
