I’m just about to start my second week of performing on my 2010 tour of New Zealand. The first week was filled with 9 schools from Auckland to Taupo with stops in Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua. If you’ve never been here before it’s like seeing the world in Technicolor. Every color explodes and it makes most other countries seem rather dull and lifeless. The reason for this is the massive amount of rain they get here. Thus it’s unusual (at least for this time of year) to have a nice sunny day without any clouds.
We’ve been traveling to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jump Rope for Heart in New Zealand. Every school we go to gets a 30 minute or so demo and then an hour long workshop with 20 or so students learning how to jump. It’s been fantastic and we’ve met a lot of really neat students.
Speaking of which, it’s time to head out to our first school of the day. Have a great week and we’ll be traveling from Napier to Wellington this week. Cheers!
