When flying north I always try to sit on the right side of the plane so I can watch Wellington recede into the distance. Looking down on Wellington is awesome especially when you can see your apartment building, that would be my apartment building on Pipitea Street. I love that street name, maybe because it reminds me of my favourite sister.
And then there was this view, yup I was in the city. With people right there, close by, with their stereos going from 7am, thumping away. With stupid little dogs yapping through the fence by the open sliding door. And the heat! The sticky humid heat.. actually that was great except that a southern summer wardrobe is a little heavy wearing in that northern weather.
But this is why I go home to Hamilton as often as I can
Those scary, distorted Paea kids, you gotta love 'em
P.S. I do have to say I think Sam Land is the best ever name for a peace criminal, not that he was convicted of slashing the Waihopai spy dome so he's not a criminal and he has a good, solid peacenik beard now. I wonder if he was growing it while waiting the for the trial?
