I am too busy exploring the wonder that is New Zealand to write anything. So, photos.
Also, I have not allowed nearly enough time for my visit here. Clearly this needs to be rectified, and the only way to do it to support the New Zealand in 2020 bid. So I have yet another reason to come back.
So far my contribution to this has been introducing Jurica to Norman, my host and bid chair. Jurica was a member of the Krazy Kroats group that put on the Zagreb bid in 1996 and lost to Ozziecon 3. He helped organize the Croatian parties I keep hearing about from assorted fandom members ever since I visited my first Worldcon.
