Squirk's Overseas Experience

The tales of one Kiwi returning to Mother Britain and exploring the Big Wide World... without being eaten by a shark.

Our heritage indeed

To celebrate New Zealand's national day in London, it's traditional to attend the biggest pub crawl in London—the informally-organised Waitangi Day Circle Line pub crawl. I got some very confused looks from The Monkey when I brought her to Kiwifruits (the New Zealand shop) so I think I'll need to look elsewhere for support—anyone interested?

I think I'm more interested in the massive 4pm street haka in Parliament Square, which needed special dispensation from the Police this year now that gathering for protest action there has been criminalised.

Update 30 Jan: I've fixed the link to Kiwifruits. (thanks Bob)

    Sounds good Mel, it'd be good to see you all again. It's probably safer to text me than any kind of email or whatever, because I'm losing my home Internet access :-(

    Great I found you. At Last!!! With lots of help from Bennie :)
    What we want to know is have you been to the theatre?....not the pitchas that is! Good local theatre coming at the end of the month: The vagina Monologues. Locally we are talking Diana into taking the guest monologue. Darn she's refused though she is having the time of her life.
