Ahh. Hastings. We were here for 10 minutes tops.
We rolled into town and followed the signs for the city centre. Hastings is so like an American town. Lots of street blocks and streets that are far too straight for their own good.
On the way out of town we drove pat more of the vin yards. very nice. "Wineries", as they're known over here. Doesn't sound as classy does it? We decided to head back towards Taupo.
