Now, we didn't actually go up into the Mungatooks. The road becomes a dirt track and winds around a good deal. Good for walking and dirt biking and stuff. Instead, I just took a photo looking towards the Mungatooks at the start of Maungakotukutuku Road.

I love that word, Maungakotukutuku. Wonder what it means. 'Maunga' is 'mount', I know that much.

Now, the other way to get to the Mungatooks is by going through Paraparaumu, the town north of Raumati Beach. So that's where we're going next!

There's both Paraparaumu Beach, on the coast, and Paraparaumu, inland. No such case exists with Raumati Beach. What people call Raumati is synonymous with Raumati Beach.

So here's what passes for Paraparaumu Beach.

Looking the other way from the last photo, at my beloved Kapiti Island.

Arty shot of a random Paraparaumu Beach street.

I haven't much in the way of photos from Paraparaumu. Here's looking from Paraparaumu railway station to the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes up on the hill behind the town.

Not a whole lot, I have a cold that I should probably get over via going to bed soon. Last week of term, and I have a history assignment due that I haven't actually started yet. Fuck, I haven't even chosen the essay topic! But I get along with that particular teacher, so hopefully she won't mind if I go up to her tomorrow and am all like "uh so basically when you were talking about classicism can I write about neo-classicism instead cause I haven't started my essay yet lol", cause I think I will do that. I'm basically the only student in the class that has any idea or concept of art history (it's compulsory for all art students, and ideal because I was planning on doing a history course instead).

I think I started rambling there... oh, and my sister's back from Britain, if only for a few more weeks. So that rocks. How have you been, then?

Now we head up the line to Otaihanga. My aunt and uncle lived here when I was little. It's this nice little rural locality that really has nothing besides some nice, large residential blocks and the Kapiti rubbish tip.

I have to take all my photos from Wikipedia rather than my LJ photo account, as I don't have any there. But all these photos are still mine. I did the entire Otaihanga article on Wikipedia.

So here's the railway at Otaihanga!

Ahh. I've been sort of like that, except more like "hai guise I had appendicitis so I'm behind and need to catch up lol", and "hai I has a srs job now?"

Which is why I haven't been on here at all. Plus I went away for a few days.

And apparently not even 'hall'. What the fuck, I always thought it was.

Screw you, lyrics websites.

Eh, he sometimes sings it "killing time" live, so I thought I'd do that to be special.
