At the races

Man, that was nice surprise by my beautiful wife: going to the races! Never been to a horse race here in New Zealand in all those years. Considering that Te Rapa race course is actually located in Hamilton, quite sad…

Anyhow, we packed a picnic with lots of nice food, dressed up (well, nice shirt for me at least) and drove over to the course. After watching a couple of races – half hour wait, then 90s race, half hour wait, 90s race, etc – we decided to bet as well. We had massive success: $0 return! 🙂

The only thing that sucked, we had a nasty puncture on the way back. A big piece of metal embedded itself in one of tyres. At least, it wasn’t one of the new ones which we’d just replaced a couple of weeks ago.
