Arrived in Christchurch

Yesterday I arrived in Christchurch, after flying around 24 hours from São Paulo, with stop overs in Buenos Aires and Auckland. It was great to catch up with my family and some friends.

I experienced my first after-shock, a 3.6 level shock, last night and was woken up around 9:30 am this morning by a bigger one, a 4.4, which was obviously wanting to help me get quickly adjusted to the NZ time zone!

Sadly, I accidentally blew up my Compaq PCs power supply on the 220v mains, so will be trying to fix that ASAP. At the moment I am using my Philco netbook, connected to my brother Nate’s internet access, which for some strange reason is blocking access to my sites and email
