Today we bussed into the city to meet fellow Bendites we were introduced to via e-mail by our mutual friends in Prineville. Katy & Steve are on a monthlong visit to the North Island of New Zealand and we happen to be in the same city today. We met at the Te Papa Museum cafe and spent over 2 hours talking about NZ, travel in general and back home (Bend)! It turns out they live only about a mile from us back home! Since we had never met before I used the old cardboard sign method of finding them in the crowded cafe!
We had a wonderful time and parted ways as the cafe was being closed down! Robert and I headed over to the grocery store and bought some food for dinner then bussed our way back to the B&B to grill our fish.
