September 9: New Zealand

Woo hoo, it’s finally here! Today is the start of the 2011 Rugby World Cup and I’m sitting here watching the All Blacks playing Tonga in the opening game as I write this post. The buzz has been building in New Zealand for the last week and flags flying everywhere so I thought this would be a fitting shot for today. It’s been cool to see all the supporters from around the world in Christchurch over the past few days and a reminder of how many Pacific Islanders we have living in New Zealand judging by the number of Samoan and Tongan flags around! Tonga is my adopted second team for the tournament so a bit of a clash to start but really hoping that they will perform well over the next few weeks. Anyway, too much writing, not enough watching!! Much rugby in store and a great start on day 250! 🙂
