a photo (from the internet) of the Taieri Gorge train
Last Friday, all of the international students went on the (touristy) train trip to Taieri Gorge. The scenery was beautiful! The gorge was filled with trees and a beautiful river - the only signs of civilization were the train tracks and a vacation house many miles into the gorge that belongs to a New Zealand family. There were also many sheep and wild ducks along the way. I was sitting on the wrong side of the train to get the best pictures, but I was able to get a few good shots from the platforms between the train cars. I hope you enjoy!
