I've made friends with the staff.  This is Ian from Ireland.

 

Now James and Cliff are buddies.

 

Meet Jose, from Chile.

 

And Matt, the bar manager, who's a Kiwi.

 

The boys play nice together.

 

Cliff and James have become best mates.

 

Cliff with his glasses, which he keeps having to put on to see on my camera's little LCD screen the photos I'm taking.

 

Serious.

 

At some point, James gets involved in a pool game with some other kids.

 

One of which has no shoes, a thing not as taboo in New Zealand as it is here.  When I inquire about their absence, he replies, I lost one, and the other ones on the road somewhere, I dont know.  Eloquent.
