well, you can't say that greymouth lures you into the image of being some fancy hip place-to-be kinda city. not with that name anyway.
it's extremely windy here, however. i took a little walk to the sea (crossing all the not-so-very-fancy half rotten industrial buildings (depressing btw)) and was almost blown off my feet. i recognized that small towns try to come up with hip catch phrases - like "omarama - city of light & flight" or "twizel - city of trees"- to compensate the obvious absence of just basically everything. i suggest for greymouth something alike: "greymouth - the city that will blow you away" (or just forget about the 'away') or something along these lines.

anyway...my little detour via the north part of the south island is almost over. tomorrow i'll take the train to christchurch. looking forward to that.
especially since today a girl threw up two hours into our five hour bus ride in the bus. bleh. don't like buses anymore so much.

the north was nice. but man, i missed the mountains. i figured that today as the snow covered summits were finally visible again. i think i gonna miss the mountains too when i'm back in germany. *le sigh*


hope your all doing fine. :)
