    Default Civic Square area of Wellington

    Hey guys,

    I was chatting with my mom yesterday and I was showing her different parts of NZ with the linking ability of "www.googlesightseeing.com"

    This post is for her, as it's easier to format than an e-mail. Feel free to enjoy as well though :-)

    I haven't been around on the forum much lately, but life is good. I'm moving to Cuba Street right in the middle of town, and my contract just got extended with TelstraClear until June 2007.


    This is the Civic Square area of Wellington from satellite - http://googlesightseeing.com/maps?p=...74.778039&z=17



    Click the above link :-)

    Ok, now you can look at the pictures.....


    Here's an aerial photo of Wellington with Civic Square featured prominently. The circular building near the bottom left is the Michael Fowler Centre (performing arts auditorium)

    My new place is the blue building to the left of the MFC with the green roof (about 5 stories tall).




    The Michael Fowler Centre (from my cell phone):




    Inside of the MFC: Click the link for a panoramic (very reminiscent of the Bob Carr Center in Orlando)- http://www.wotzon.com/profilepage.html?comp_id=1001755

    Thanks for the links and pics, James. Found the following to be quite interesting:

    Spiral artwork

    NZ Herald article about the above.

    Hope you?ve got some great views of the harbour from your desk. Looks like a neat area to work in.
