Trampin’ It Up

The last couple days I’ve been tramping all over Mount Cook, which means “hiking” in New Zealandease. This is the view from the hotel room, which is totally awesome but reminds me a ton of the Overlook in the The Shinging. Probably just because it’s near a mountain and all creepy and stuff, because my brain really does work that simple:

We tramped all over this joint today. Seriously, it took like seven hours and man are my muslces aching:

I was all active and stuff. I don’t think i’ve been this fit in years.

I only fell down hard thrice. Once, in a river:

My shoes and socks and feet are all gross and wet and smelly but I don’t give a fig. This place is amazing, but at this point I am sick to shit of it, mostly because of the CRAPPY INTERNET ACCESS that I just paid 4 bucks per minute for and ain’t worth a fig.

I know I’m in a foriegn country because i just used the word “fig” twice in one post, and because there are a million asians around me right now.

    That seems like a lot of money for the internet. Not sure that they really trust electrical things down there. Half that price in the North Island.

    NZ rules, you planning on spending much time in the North Island? Totally different up there, still georgeous, but totally different countryside.

    And yeah, internets a bit difficult if you live at the bottom of the world
