I caught an early morning bus over the Southern Alps to the West Coast of New Zealand today. The ride was not very scenic because it was raining and foggy. The driver was being a comedian telling us about all the beautiful scenery on the way but all we could see was a big grey wall of fog. The fog lifted a few times but for most of the way we could not see much of anything. I still kept snapping pics and a few of them I will post but most of them I just deleted when I looked at them. Once in Greymouth the city the bus stopped at on the West Coast, I wandered around town as far as I could walk which wasn't far. Not much exciting around town. Tomorrow I am riding a bike trail along the coast in the morning and then in the afternoon I am going to a national park up north of Greymouth. I will post pics of that when I get back. On Friday I am taking the train back to Christchurch. The train is said to be one of the best ones in the world. That is a big statement to make so I will let you know if I agree with them.
