Telling tales from around the world

Hot summer night

with 6 comments

We were in town for the Lantern Festival, ringing in the Chinese New Year – the year of the rabbit. Got some brilliant shots of some of the displays – ate all sorts of unusual Asian food that I probably wouldn’t try in a restaurant (loved the cold wheat noodles with tamarind sauce from Xi-an!)

As we were leaving we stopped to take a couple of nightlife shots of the city… I love Auckland – it’s so bustling at night – totally alive – unusual for a city of only a million people… a lot of that bustling was, of course, done by the young – young, beautiful, scantily clad and full of piss and vinegar…

This is looking from East to West across town on Victoria St. The tower is the Sky Tower – a gambling and entertainment complex – and the tallest building in the southern hemisphere…

  2. Not last night, though I have been up there many times. It’s a popular venue for holiday parties and other social functions. There’s also a revolving restaurant where one must take offspring for milestone birthdays…


  3. Great shot, excellent writing! That little poem is very, very good Madam, deserves a clap on it’s own. Clap.

    • No worries – while you are basking in the glories of summer, I will be shivering and quivering in the Auckland winter – cold, wet and rainy…
