"blimey! it's snowing!"

this is just one of the lines expressed by the magicbus driver, on this magical trip through new zealand.
.
there is absolutely no way to describe the landscape. ..what's completely amazing (to me) is the sight of crystal-clear-blue rivers, streams and rapids -- one after another after another after another and again and again and again.
.
i've decided not to take river-pictures through the magicbus window, b/c i want to get out and feel it, to smell it, to hear it. ..(you know)

below: lake mattheson. .."wow!" is a ridiculous understatement.

  2. Claude,

    I can't belive that you swam in that lake. Was it summer?
    .
    On the next blog, I'll post a picture from the beach area, to help bring back a few of your memories.
