Right, so, we were off the Palmerston North, from now on referred to as Palmy. Sadly there are no palm trees. But there are plenty of mountains, greenery, sheep, and wind farms. Oh yeah, there is an epic wind farm that you can see from most of town and almost anywhere on campus.
So we arrived at the airport, which is quite small, and headed out to our new 'hostels' aka dorms. We were given our new, fancy keys unique to the Palmy campus-
Once we were dropped off we were on our own. Luckily we had such things as cell phones and easily met up again. While wandering campus a bit we found the veterinary pond, aka the duck pond.
After the morning I had I should have known better than to go anywhere near a body of water with electronics on my person, but I didn't. I proceeded to drop my camera in the nasty pond water. So yes, both of my darling cameras were now waterlogged. Luckily I found a bag of rice at one of the shops on campus and kept my camera in it for about three days. After which I took it out, shook out all the rice that managed to make it's way into the inner workings of the camera, and re-installed the batteries and memory card. I felt like I was Dr. Frankenstein, bringing my poor camera back to life. But man is that thing a trooper. It works perfectly fine, no spasms or anything.
After my camera was reborn, I took some pictures of my beautiful, single- person room in my new place of residence- Miro Hall.
