After we went to the market today, we had yum char for lunch and then decided we were going to head home. On the way home I changed my mind. Because it was quite a nice day outside, I thought it would be a good idea to drive up o Wrights Hill. I’ve never been there before, which is strange seeing as it’s right next to where we are pretty much.
The views from up there are pretty great. On one side you’re able to see the whole city and pretty much the suburbs too. On the other side, you’re able to see the windmills out in Makara. It was quite cold up there with a southerly, so we didn’t stick around for long, but I managed to take a few photos.
To be honest, I don’t know much about what New Zealand did during the world war. I probably should know more seeing as I’ve been here for the last 6,5 years, but history was one of my least favourite subjects in school, and it still doesn’t interest me much. (I know, I’m terrible.)
But apparently they installed two guns up there, which were never used for harm. They apparently only test shot them, which is good. Reminds me of the guns we had in Sweden. They were never used either, seeing as we were a neutral country during the war.
So, I enjoyed the view more than the history! Haha.
