dunedin

This is Dunedin where I live and attend University. I have lived here for 10 years and I like it very much. Dunedin has a pretty bad rep... for everyone really. People think Hamilton's cooler now but Hamilton really actually sucks really bad. Tourists tend to avoid Dunedin... compared to other places. They go to shit places like Queenstown and Christchurch. Christchurch is honestly the crappest place in the country next to Palmerston North (sorry Palmy Northers...).I think Dunedin's cool. I AM DUNEDIN! (hehe)

This is where Dunedin actually is - at the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand in a little province called Otago. Notice it's distance from Auckland at the top... that makes me happy

This is the clock tower registry building of Otago University. It's pretty. The Uni was founded in 1869 (I think) and it was the first University in New Zealand. It was called, 'University of New Zealand'. Hehe. It's cool... I'm only a silly fresher but I like it. It doesn't always look that nice of course. Often it's cold and then everything's grey. But it's still always quite green.

This is some of the shiny stuff at the University. There's lots of that now. I don't know what this is exactly, but I've seen it before and it's really quite shiny.

This is the main street of Dunedin, George St. The picture appears to be somewhat dated, but that's because I stole it from the City Council homepage. All city council and touristy information does that. Notice the little backpacks...

to be quite honest, i have no idea where the fuck this is, but it's somewhere or other in dunedin... maybe around the harbour somewhere, but i'm not sure. .

this is our lovely town hall. i have partaken in many activities in this building. there is also a cool wee movie theatre just inside on the left sort of. it's cool.

i think that that funny circly looking thing in the middle is the octagon. the octagon is sort of like, the city centre. on friday and saturday nights, bogans from places like milton and the peninsula come in and cruise the main. they go right through the middle of the octagon and it's fun and games for all!

this is st. paul's cathedral. it's a presbytarian church. it's really gorgeous, but it's christian, so i don't spend a lot of time there.

that's my wee tiki tour around dunedin. i hope it makes you want to live here.
