This is always a popular move. Whitcoulls was the next stop: the Queen Street shop knocks all the others into a cocked hat: it was a good place to visit.
We eventually wound up at the Imax place where I bought tickets for two shows: Experience in the Third Dimension at noon and Mysteries of Egypt at 3. After the first, which we thoroughly enjoyed, we andered off to look up one of my old friends from Countrywide Bank, who was in a meeting at first but very pleased to see me - or, if not, gave that impression! We swapped stories about what our mutual friends and acquaintances were doing, so far as we knew.
Back for the Egypt show, which Matthew enjoyed but said he hadn't learned much new from it. I don't think that's the idea - they are there to enjoy, probably, not for pure education purposes. Still, never mind. Some more wandering, up to the Sky Tower but not up the Tower, if you see what I mean. $15 is too much. Even though our dollar has fallen through the floor, it's still the only currency I have.
Then back up Queen Street. We played a game of Age of Kings across the network at one of the cybercafés. As I don't really know the game, I felt that I was at a disadvantage, but I did start to build a wonder before David destroyed it. We didn't have time to finish the game: we had to go back to the hotel to pick up our bags and go off to the railway station. But that, as they say, is another story.
