I have finally found an internet here that I can post photos. Since my last writing we spent a day driving along the coast, and a day hiking around Arthurs Pass. Now we are south of Christchurch, in a small coastal town called Timaru.

All the cafes here have wonderful filo dough pastries. This one is mushroom asparagus. The other day, I had salmon, mushroom, and sundried tomato.
