MONDAY to WEDNESDAY, 3-5 October
After the amazing and sunny weekend in Porirua, Wellington welcomed me back as I remembered it from my first visit, rainy and gloomy. I returned to the YHA hostel but most of my time I spent at the Library wasting my time on the Internet, just like I used to spend my time at home. I caught up on my blogs and websites, but the most important thing, i.e. looking for job was left at the end. When I started browsing the immigration and seek job sites, I was getting more and more discouraged and stressed out. I’m really bad at looking for job. I don’t know how I survived until now. Probably I’m spoiled by the safe environment of my country. Usually it was work that found me, not me it.
To relax myself, I was going for walks when it wasn’t raining, which was rarely. I went to Newtown and tried delicious burger at Monterey. A small, but very cool place. You could tell that most of the customers were regulars.

I also went to Fidel’s café. As I was drinking my coffee (very strong and good), Richie from The Phoenix Foundation parked his car in front of it. He noticed me, we smiled, waved to each other, said ‘hi’ and off he went his way. I love Wellington for moments like that.
