@dlowan,
Upgraded to New Zealand or from NZ?
Any upgrade is good. And yes, the Qantas lounge is not as bling as it was.
But...better than the general transit lounge.

@margo,
From Adelaide to Auckland. We are now in Auckland figuring out what we are going to do today. A ferry is being discussed. Lovely feel to this city.

Off to San Francisco tomorrow....we forked out for premium economy.

My backpack zip has broken to my immense frustration.

@dlowan,
Oy.

May you fix that soon. Or someone in SF will know how.
Bunny and pal in SF, oh, my. I will be very interested in your impressions, short or long. Mine have varied wildly over the years but I have generally loved the place.

It is different now than even when I last passed through, re economic variation.

I got into the Fort Mason area on some of my last visits, the walking space, the arty stuff, bridge in view, even the Greens restaurant (well, then, I don't know about it now.)

Do I remember you are going to a thing in Monterey? That's on my love list two, though I have only been there a few times. I'm an aquarium liker, but also liked the people I met in the town. Had a favorite art gallery, started with an H, specialized in california paintings. This is fuzzy - the owner lived at a house Steinbeck lived in at some point, or so I remember. Asked us (sort of an art crew heading to Sacramento, one of the three of us a government person) to their place for a glass of wine. I remember liking the gallery and I'm very picky re CA art.

Ah, found it -

and I remember wanting to move to Pacific Grove, back then, circa '95.

Funny, they usually break from overpacking....

@Joe Nation,
It broke because the fabric at one end deteriorated and allowed the zippy open and close thing to drop off!

Grrrrrrrr

@dlowan,
Loving San Francisco.....except for stupid back cannot cope with sitting on any remotely hard surface. Have included blow up cushion in that which I carry in backpack. Hope it may help.

Hummingbirds in our little private bit of back yard. Small room in beautiful weatherboard multi storey home in Tenderloin. Wonderfully knowledgeable couple

I am resting back early part of today them going into down town area. Have discovered one beautiful and healthy place to eat so far.....

Beautiful weather.

Lost my kindle charger. : (
