The most Southernmost city that has the most southern of everything from the YHA hostel to the McDonalds. Stuart Island is next, a couple hours by ferry, population 360! Not too much to do but had a pleasant date with Rob, roaming the musuem-art gallery displaying photos of Japanese fashion and the ancient Tuatara lizard. Then took advantage of the Tuesday special and watched Memoirs of a Geisha. Some really beautiful scenes of kimonos and cherry blossoms, high cliffs and mazes of tiled rooftops. I would have preferred to hear it in Japanese with subtitles and the geisha lipstick was not drawn on properly, but overall a pretty and romantic film to watch. P
