Rain in Auckland

Following the good example of a typical New Zealander (so I’m told) I decided to completely ignore the rain this morning. You see in New Zealand there is no bad weather, it never gets cold and doesn’t rain.

Just bought my new umbrella.. was a bit too late actually...

When I arrived at work, a whole 10 minutes walk from my apartment, I discovered that the Kiwis are right. Even though it appeared to be raining outside I was still dry!

Unfortunately, having arrived back home after a days work, I can tell you that it does rain in Auckland.

It is just that at times, like this morning, the rain isn’t very heavy. It was more like a haze or a dribble whereas in the afternoon the rain really came down on me.

After leapfrogging from one bit of overhead cover to another and still getting soaked I jumped into the first shop that sold something resembling umbrellas.

$29.90 later me and my new best friend ‘Umbry’ walked the streets of Auckland.

Time to get changed: dinner in Devonport tonight!
