It's an early flight to Christchurch and Moni kindly drives me out to the airport on the Special Secret Route. The plane's all but empty, so I reallocate myself to an available window seat to watch the cloud cover and occasional coastline go by.

Today is a short entry because I'm now on work time. I'm spending the afternoon with my opposite number at the University of Canterbury, to discuss some possible collaboration. The campus is lovely, as is the beer and haggis on offer at the staff pub.

I don't see much of Christchurch beyond the hotel and a wander around the town centre, ending up at a Genuine Oirish Pub, which offers me Free Beer due to seating issues.
