Day 6/7: Napier

Napier seems to be a wonderful city. I love the art deco buildings. It's a city of 57,000 but you wouldn't think it. It's very laidback and sleepy.

Had a cruisy morning yesterday. Got some laundry done. Headed into town for lunch at the "Starving Artist" cafe. Mmm...chicken lasagne and coffee.

Spent the afternoon on a walking tour of Napier's buildings. That was fascinating! I'm in love with art deco. ;>

Today was a full day wine tour. The bus picked us up from the motel and dropped us off afterwards, which was awesome. In fact, the whole tour was awesome. We even visited a chocolate factory! I picked up a dessert wine: Matariki 2004 Late Harvest Riesling. It was the best wine I tried all day. ;> I have such a sweet tooth. :P

Had Thai for dinner. Mmm...chicken green curry.
