s of Ross to Greymouth, New Zealand
90 km (55.9 mi)

Ride was alright today. Stopped in Hokatika for lunch today. A woman pulled out onto the road and her car died right in the middle of it. Two policemen were standing there watching the whole thing happen and they helped push her off the road.

Got to Greymouth around 4:30pm in the afternoon. Went to the YHA but the office wasn't open for a little while, so I went to a different backpackers instead. Got settled in, met a few people from the hostel. There was some sorta 3 dollar BBQ going on at a pub...so we all went there. One of the girls in the bar started talking to me and said "you guys are probably here for the 3 dollar BBQ aren't you" in kind of a crass way. I just laughed...I think she thought we were on a Kiwi Experience bus or something. Ended up taking a few clock pictures thoughout the night. Ended up at a bar next door where there was a band playing. I ended up staying there and dancing with everyone, the band did a nice fast cover of Kylie's "Can't get you out of my head". Didn't get to sleep till about 2:30am with my ears ringing.
