Did you know you can have photos in your blog? It is pretty easy. Just choose “Upload file” from the main menu (that is is, if you have a blog here).

We went and had a look at the new railway station in downtown Auckland. As we were wandering through the building I was struck by the beautiful windows. Click on the image for the full size picture. The “window’ is actually a glass dome in the ceiling.

It really is a lovely station, but it is a shame that there are no trains—I’ve been there three or four times and there is never a train in the station. In fact, all the people I see there seem to be tourists exploring the architecture—not actually going anywhere. In the defence of the station, I should say I’ve only been there at weekends. How different is it during the working week?
