Sunday, hiking in the port hills; jump a bus into town and take any of four city busses that run by trail heads for a short ride to spectacular tracks. You can go for a 20 minute walk about or disapear for the day.

Hiking upward from chch
Ok, its just a sheep, but its a different experience coming across big flocks of them on a hike.
Chasing them, no matter how cute, is definitely illegal-
Easy test, which part of this ridge was grazed?
Narv tries to hit the 15 foot bike jump

Friday afternoon Mic, Meghan's flatmate, took us to one of his favorite cafes in the old part of the city. I don't know how I missed this part of the city, its not two blocks from downtown, but much nicer, I'll be going back for further exploration in the very near future.
Classic restored old building on High Street
Three Brother's Wheat, home brewed at the Twisted Hop
Caution: this beer is extremely fresh, this is the kind of place to go to if you want a good Kiwi brew and fine food.
Are you hungry? Emmental, Sopressa and freshly baked bread
What more can you ask for?
