I wish there was an easy way to tell which pictures I have already posted here and which ones I have just uploaded to picasa ^^;;;
In summer my parents like to bring me flowers from their garden. I guess that is because in Russia people tend to live in apartments and you don't tend to see many flowers outside of the 3 or 4 months of hot weather. You can tell this photo has been taken a while ago, as I lost all my matryoshka glasses in the February quake.
This photo does not look all that exciting either, but thinking back to the day I took it, it is quite cool. This is Mt Eden and you can see the volcano crater. I was quite surprised to see that it is all nice and green. Like a jewellery box lined with green velvet. I think this is the first volcano I have ever seen in real life o-o I'm really glad Y. put up with me and showed me so many cool places in Auckland :D
