Its dark, bloody dark, how depressing. When we left Auckland we had to be careful how long we stood in the sun, when we arrived back in Ireland, it was raining and surprisingly dark. This week, the forecast is for a mostly dry and cold, which will hopefully also mean that it will be brighter.

Something that interested me in New Zealand, was that in almost every large town, there was at least one BP filling station with a solar panel covered forecourt. It turns out this is an initiative by BP. Quite interesting.
