On our last full day in New Zealand (before a super early flight which lands before it depart, thanks to the international date line), we were awoken to a view of Mount Cook — finally! — after a late night of star gazing. We drove slowly at first in order to stop and appreciate our last chance at the view… and then picked up the pace so that we could spend an evening in Christchurch. A talented cover artist sung us out… not included in the video was that he sang John Denver’s “Jet Plane” at my request, as that was always our farewell song at Camp Ihduhapi, and seemed a fitting way to end the trip. Farewell, New Zealand! It’s been fun!
The bar/restaurant where we heard the singer was the OGB (Old Government Building).
