Party Time

Flew back to Auckland yesterday for the Opening Ceremony and first match of Rugby World Cup 2011. 50,000 people on the Auckland waterfront. 60,000 in the stadium for a celebration of all things New Zealand. Party time . . . New Zealand's had a terrible 2011 with the Pike River mining disaster and the Christchurch earthquakes. Everyone needs some relief. The All Blacks won, our friendly neighbors Tonga played well and gave their all, and one billion people around the world tuned in. That's better!!
