You know you are in Wellington

…when you are walking along the waterfront being buffeted by the wind and worried that any second you will be pushed over the edge and into the water.

Then you look up and see a strange figure hurtling toward you; a guy on a skateboard being propelled along by his rubbish sack sail. Held out to catch the maximum amount of wind and traveling a pretty damn fast speed.

Walking along by Waitangi park, cars beep to let you know they are laughing at your inability to walk properly. But you get to laugh right back when you see them trying to stay in their narrow lanes on Cable St with the wind threatening to disrupt their course straight into the $200,000 Mercedes traveling next to them.
