|"Lincoln is great - I'm enjoying the people, food, and little outings to Christchurch. Yesterday we went out hiking and I've been able to play a little bit of frisbee outside -- not bad at all. It's quit nice that we were able to get things in before starting school-- caving, sheering a sheep, hiking, 'hangi' dinner.. the Bridging Cultures Program was great!" |
