Never expected to be off line for such long period. Have been in transit for a while and have now ended up in a dark and uncivilized part of the world where the natives are uncouth and uneducated. Violence is always present and blood is shed every day. The weather is atrocious and the skys are constantly grey. I once said I would never return to such a place, and I should have kept my word and stayed well way from Taranaki.
