I <3 Kiwi Fruit!!

Ok so its back to work again but this time instead of slaving away in the fields I am stuck in an assembly line packing Kiwi fruit. After hanging in Auckland for a few days after Kelly arrived we took off for the Bay of Islands (which is located in the northern part of the northern island haha) in search of some work. We found ourselves a pretty steady fruit packing shed job and a nice home right next to a river. Be sure to check your local supermarkets for Kiwis the next time your there, if they have a Zespri label then there is a pretty good chance it was packed where I work.
Quick Fact: New Zealand controls 28% of world trade in kiwifruit through Zespri, but is the second largest production country, after Italy.

I'll be sure to get some great pics of me in my work attire (which is an apron and hair net haha). If any of you can remember that I love Lucy episode where she works the assembly line and it goes rapid speed on her, well thats how i feel alllll day long. I get up before its light and return home after dark thanks to 12 hours shifts haha. OK well wish me luck for the next few weeks and I'll be sure to update as soon as something exciting happens. Miss you all!
