After all these months of planning, I have finally arrived in New Zealand. While the flight was long, every thing went very smoothly. In Los Angeles I met up with two other Fulbrighter that are coming to New Zealand and we all had lucky necklaces on.
I even read 230 pages of a real book. I also met a nice Aussie musician/artist from Perth named Mick. He was on his way back from working on a farm in Mexico, so we chatted a lot about traveling and how to give back to the communities you visit.
Last evening we just met up with some other Fulbrighters and at dinner at a Turkish restaurant. Today I got out and got a phone and activated our bank account. Don't worry, I won't be giving this many details once I get busy. Tomorrow I get our house, and all next week I'll be busy with getting set up at the university and having our Fulbright orientation.
