semi-overcast 12 °C

Today I went see to Macky again and once more had very nice day.
I had lunch at his home.
We played table tennis and I won 3 games to 1. to finish off our games we played basket-ball.
Caro (macky's mum) droped me at the cinema where I had found Mark and the family.
Bruce (mark's friend) came around to drop in some ski clothes and the car chains. And I learnt to put on the car chains.

Day 45: I bought a car, Christchurch botanical garden

sunny 20 °C

This morning Richard bought a new car. I navigated through the war torn streets of Christchurch for Richard. He bought a Nissen Bluebird (but it is white).
Mark, Megan and Kate went for another sausage sizzle. After lunch we went for a walk in the Christchurch Botanical Gardens. It was looking like the beginning of Spring.

Swathi came for tea. She cooked dinner. Richard stayed the night again.

Famous French people I have learnt about in New Zealand;

Jacque-Yves Gousteau, Marcel Marceau.
