Hitting out in Christchurch

Davey and I went down to Christchurch for the day on Wednesday. We both had a few things to do.. I had a meeting with Mike Dodge, head of CYS (Canterbury Youth Services). CYS is the Baptist Church's arm to assist the youth groups and programs on the South Island. Mike has been working with kids for years and years, so we had a good yarn. CYS organises Easter Camp which I went on this year with Ashburton Baptist. 3000+ kids on one campsite. Its a really impressive operation.

Anyway as the afternoon rolled on Davey and I decided the State of Origin was worth staying the night for - Timezones aren't always kind. We pooled our resources found some beds for the night and rocked on over to The Holy Grail. Not much to say for the result of the Origin match hey, nor the excessive amount of Queensland supporters. Incidently the Holy Grail is where Tana Umaga smacked Chris Masoe over the head with a hand bag. Famous incidents by now..














Highlight for today was, of course, Nandos. We waited 2 hours for the manager to open up and I have a weakness, I freely admit, for it is no secret the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Satisfaction guaranteed.

I hope you've all had two days as fun as mine.
