Steph and I flew to Wellington on Day 3 of my trip.
The Wellington airport declares that Wellington is the “Middle of Middle-earth.” Kind of true, if you assume the whole of NZ is Middle-earth – Wellington is more or less in the middle of New Zealand. haha
This little space had different boulders sitting around with labels telling you what sort of rock they are. There was a… talc rock? Yes, I think that’s it. There was a talc rock and if you scratched it you’d get bits of white powder on your finger – the white powder is talcum powder. That was kinda interesting.
This game was fun. It’s obviously meant for kids but we had a go at it and found it amusing. You play the part of an alien who lands on a planet and tries to colonize the place. You get to pick three native flora or fauna from your home planet to take with you. Then the game will tell you your survival rate depending on what you chose – you might barely survive, do ok, or live in luxury. (I can’t remember the exact wordings, but it’s something like that anyway. hahah) We tried a few times before finding what we deemed the best possible combination of creatures and plants. hahah
A shopping arcade. Oh, the whole place was really relatively quiet because it was Easter weekend and nearly everything was closed. Really. There were only a handful of food outlets and convenience stores open the whole weekend…
The historic Dominion Observatory.
