Day 29 – Ponsonby (our last night in New Zealand)
It was another dazzling summer day in Auckland today (nothing but sunshine). Per the recommendation of my dear friend JD (who is a native born Kiwi), Ryan and I went on a “hunt” to find some Ponsonby Pies today. We took the bus to the Ponsonby area of Auckland but could not find the store which sold these delicious meat pies. Fortunately an owner of a local grocery store in Ponsonby guided us to the Auckland Countdown (a large supermarket in the downtown area) where we found them. Tonight we feasted on these delightful gourmet pies and enjoyed a bottle of Marlborough Riesling to commemorate our last night in New Zealand. Tomorrow we fly to Melbourne, Australia.
