|Surf's Up: a view of St. Clair beach taken on my second day back in Dunedin, 2011|
A quick update for all of you.
Yes, I have arrived New Zealand safely.
But not without a little drama.
My plane was delayed twice.
From Melbourne and Christchurch.
First of all, Melbourne was amazing.
I was only there for 2 days but oh my goodness, I am so in love with that city.
Thanks to this girl and her family who took such good care of me.
(I will blog about Melbourne, of course!)
Secondly, my flight out of Christchurch was actually cancelled.
I quietly panicked because I arrived at 1 a.m. and there were no staff for me to approach.
Yes, I actually stopped over there for 8 hours.
I didn't feel any aftershocks whatsoever.
But I did witness a very long line of people waiting to fly out of there.
I managed to get a later flight to Dunedin and I was very relieved.
Now I am back in Dunedin.
I missed a week's worth of post-grad classes.
Let's just say I have a lot of work to catch up on.
A lot doesn't even begin to describe it but oh well.
InshaAllah, I hope to start blogging as per usual soon-ish.
And this is my cue to start apologising for my lack of effort in terms of replying emails and comments.
I promise, I'm not being a snob.
And I promise I have sooo much to blog about it's making me nervous.
I just need some time to settle down.
After all, that's what being back in Dunedin is all about this year.
Mellowing down a little bit.
