Greetings from Auckland

It's been exactly one week since we landed in Auckland. We are working in a new city, on a new project, with new people. We don't know any one here. There isn't too much information online about Auckland, except for the typical tourist stuff. You can walk through the city center in about 30 minutes. It's not a big town. Most of the action seems to occur in the towns outside of Auckland or Wellington. I hear that is the place to be. Unfortunately, we do not have a car here. But after being here for one week, we're starting to get the feeling like you NEED a car here. So, we're investigating.

One general feeling about Auckland is: Califoria, Bay Area, San Francisco. Not only is every third person here Asian, but also the land is hilly. Try walking to work everyday in 3.5" wedge boots. :-)

I'll post a few pictures later. Ciao for now.
