6th Aug. Dunedin to Invercargill

Dunedin to Invercargill
8月6日 ダニーデンからインバーカーギルだぞ

I went to bed around 10 o’clock last night, and woke up at 9 o’clock this morning. I slept a lot maybe because I was so tired because of this cold.
 When I came to the south island 12 years ago from Nagano prefecture, I felt nothing about its cold, but now I really feel cold because Tonga belongs to the subtropical zone.

After I ate breakfast, I went sightseeing. My guide book says, Dunedin was built by the people from Scotland and the city still remains its histories. The building at the end of this street is the railway station.

In front of the station, the man was playing the musical instrument but I don’t know what the name is.

I wanted to take a train to go to Invercargill but a staff said a route to Invercargill finished in 2002. I took the route in 1999 when I was a university student, I might be lucky. Now only the short distance route is working for tourists.

This is the St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral.

This is the First Church of Otago.

This is the Octagon. All main streets start from here radially.

I ate Mabo-tofu.

Around 2 o’clock, we left Dunedin. On the way, we were forced to change our bus to the other bus. Because I had a terrible experience and left my camera in a bus in Norway, though I managed to take it back after I came back to Japan, I took extra care about it today.

There are a great many sheep in New Zealand.

When we had a short time break, I ate an ice cream. Although I have it in Tonga, I don’t eat it because it melts rapidly in Tonga.

Around 6 o’clock PM, I arrived at today’s accommodation in Invercargill. It was so windy and raining…

but I could go to McDonalds on foot, because unlike Tonga, there is no lake on the road. I hope it will be fine and I can go to Stewart Island tomorrow.
