Then we finally hit some sheep paddocks. A lot of sheep paddocks in fact!
Now fun factiod is that contray to popular belief the sheep industry is actually on the decline in New Zealand in recent times. Wool prices are declining in face of synthetic fabrics, and their meat is in far less demand in modern times on the international market. The sheep population has dropped from some 60 million in the 1970's to a mere 40 million in modern times. So as you can see sheep will be a thing of the past in about 60 years.
The vegatation around Dunedin reminded me of BC. Having wandered around I LOVE the forests in the area.
This just added to that very BC feel on the drive into town LOL.
Well that's it for right now. Next I'll show you my current place of living, and then soon there after a tour of Dunedin!
