Presently now in Christchurch, NZ, en route to Queenstown. I leave for the tournament tomorrow first thing in the morning. And what do I do as soon as I land here but head off to Cathedral Square to play chess with the local park regulars? Unfortunately, there was no board to be found except for the giant one, so I headed back to my hostel to catch some Z's.
I'm exhausted you see. I've been too busy over the last couple of days sorting out some photographic equipment as well as doing some regular work stuff. One downside of going on leave from work is all the handover you have to do! Hence, there was no post yesterday.
So, from tomorrow onwards, we should be back to the familiar programming of the live blog. It will be fun!
