I've had many extraordinary weeks here in Auckland but I'd venture to say that this one was one of the best for me! At Colwill this week I had an oppurtunity to be the teacher all day! I was so nervous but of course it went fine and I learned alot from the experience. Morning tea was extra good this week-with carrot cake, chocolate cake, and of course, Milo. mmmm.
On Friday morning I had breakfast at sunrise with Jason, Daniel, and Val. I will not forget the vivid colors, good breakfast, and good company of that day. The same day we went 4 wheeling along the beach. We ended the day with a sunset at One Tree Hill.
Pacifica festival was also a highlight! It's a giant festival of the many island cultures in the Pacific. There was food, dancing, and crafts from countries like Fiji, Tuvala, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Tonga, Samoa, etc.... I ate ice cream out of a pineapple and the best part....CHOP SUEY!! I'm the biggest fan of chop suey. I loved it because I've never been exposed to any of those cultures before! Can I please never come home????
