Wellington is a lovely city. A few homeless, but not nearly as bad as US cities. Many people know Sarasota from hurricane Ian. They are fascinated that we have alligators in our front yard. No alligators or crocodiles here. In fact they have no indigenous wild animals other than lizards!
Beautiful city. As lovely as Cape Town, but not nearly as many social problems.
We see indigenous Maori pretty integrated into society. Many mixed races including many Asians.
Had the best Chinese food ever last night. Ate at a darling Bistro restaurant tonight.
Funicular up to a glorious view of the city with lunch. Walked around the cliff.
Tomorrow catch the ferry to the South Island.
