Dunedin morning/afternoon

It was a very cold night when I arrived in Dunedin. The wind was blowing so it was a bit bumpy out there in the sky before we landed at 8:30 pm. Leigh and Rose were out there to meet me and we waited a little bit more for Stephen to arrive and drive to the hotel. Nice room so after a hot shower I slipped into my comfortable pyjamas and I uploaded the first pictures to Flickr. Cool to have broadband in the room. Little did I know the broadband connection would cost me so much! To my disapointment, I did not manage to transform the recordings I had made on the plane to mp3 and I am still trying to figure out how to do it or find a tool. Audacity does not seem to function with WMA files on the Mac.
I went to bed at midnight and slept like a log until 5:30 am the following morning.

On Monday morning we met Stephen, Teemu and Rose for breakfast at the hotel. Leigh brought Konrad who had just arrived from Canada and after several cups of coffee, talking and getting to know each other, we walked out to the Octagon. We met Michael at the cafe (who came all the way from Adelaide, AU to the conference). It was fantastic to finally be f2f after so many years just corresponding and interacting virtually. Michael is just like online – warm and very friendly. Teemu was patient enough to show me how to use the wireless and although he had a Mac as well, we didn’t manage to convert the WMA files either.
Stephen left us for Stewart Island, as he felt like having some rest and contact with nature. Rose went out to buy her pyjamas for the night at the marae. Konrad, Michael, Teemu and I went for a stroll around town but I lost them and continued my exploration on my own before joining everyone else at the staff room of the Otago Polytechnic. We met Jo, Sean, Dawn, Bron, Terry, Caroline.

    how are you doing??

    I hope that you will learn how to manage the wma to mp3.
    I was wondering if you could bring us something from New Zealand. A little “souvenir”.

    So I wish you a good trip and enjoy a lot!

    see you!
